Kim Sea Joong

Artist KIM SEA JOONG began by visualizing the abstract concept of Yunseul​ (ripples that sparkle in sunlight or moonlight) that he wanted to express as a slightly flat rather than an infinite space. It was created through countless times and processes, from painterly brushstrokes to three-dimensional forms. In the process, irregular or unpredictable structures interlock with each other to develop new formative forms.

Through the interaction of various components, new phenomena and orders with different characteristics are created. Forgiveness, which varies greatly depending on the combined state and combination, creates coexistence and an inseparable relationship like a living organism. Each part is closely connected and has an organic relationship with each other. PIGMENT BLUE, the artist's symbolic color, symbolizes tranquility and peace. It forms a different relationship with the darkness (shadow) on the other side, which contrasts with the vibrant and splendid energy of light and harmoniously expands into infinite space by adding the artistic imagination the artist wants to express.
