Choi Seung-Yoon

Seung Yoon Choi’s definitive brush touch leaves blue strokes on a canvas that move organically, and encounter and overlap themselves to create dynamic images. He expresses the fundamentals of the invisible world with the sensation from color and the movement from the brush strokes. Many of his works are mainly solid blue. It is the color of the essence and ambilaterality for him, which best suits the concept of paradox and balance that he wants to express. It is the primary color of the earth when light first encounters the sky and water and contains both sides of hope and despair, and fervent and cold.

 

With his custom-made tools, he dashes off on a canvas laid flat on the floor and captures both the painterly movement and the moment of abeyance. His vision of the world’s essence is comprised of an oxymoron. He often thinks of such unnoticeable things around us, and reads the world of coexistence and balance between the opposites; the universe and the lives, Yin and Yang, beginnings, and ends, and so on.

 

His lines and spaces are precisely controlled as if they move, collide, harmonize and ultimately come to life on canvas. Some titles of his work such as <Start of Stop>, <Completion of Start> and <Section of Time> suggest that beginnings and ends are parallel and are in contact. They are inseparable whole and ‘one’.

 

Here we can see that time and movement are understood as a flux. According to Henri Bergson, there are only perpetual changes in the context of eternal time, and thus beginning and end are essentially a single entity. This persistence is a route to pure changes, lives, and movements. Hence, it inevitably implies totality. The consciousness of life does not exist independently but unfolds as a continuous flux connected others. His painting is a generative maneuver that creates qualitative differences, and manifestation of repetitively changing lives

The world is full of paradox.

 

There is always a need for the existence of opposing forces. Imagine the functioning of heartbeat. It operates by the forces of two opposing actions: Contracts and Expands. When we are cold, we need warmth. When we are hot, we need coolness.

 

On the other hand, when someone forbid me from doing something, it may even cause my increasing desire of doing it. I somehow believe that this is the basic rules of the world. Eventually, I am motivated by this and my work is mostly inspired by this concept — Beginning of the stop. There are two interpretations for “Begin" and “Stop”.

 

Blue is generally defined as cool color tone. However, the hottest part of fire is also appears to be blue, same as the hottest star in the universe. This is an example of opposing forces, and that is why blue always appears in my work, and I am fascinated in it.
