Selected Artworks from the late 1990s

It was a time when I was experimenting with the notion of light, time, and space. The burning technique was a way to create black. Black was created by the "absence of light". During this period I was more involved with "chance, happening, and accident" by working with the left hand(I am right-handed), incorporating techniques that did not allow my years of trained technique, etc. My interest was in the implied space beyond the physical measurable picture plane. The notion of "yeobaek in Korean art," the unoccupied space was investigated by composing the positive elements with Hans Hoffman's "push and pull" theory.
