Kim Taek-Sang

Kim Taek-Sang’s work goes through the accumulation of colours, clear and transparent, over a long duration of time. The water penetrates the canvas and thereafter dries up. The repetition of such process result in creating delicate sheets of overlapping colours. He tries to minimize the artist’s control, displaying reverence for the material’s unique qualities and the given environment in order to have uncontrolled light. Because the artist believes that once he experiences the stats where he renounces his own purpose, something unaffected and amazing can be had that goes beyond the boundary. Kim Taek-Sang’s work deeply explores the territory of the subtle light, and also captures simultaneously the transience of existence and its beauty with the passing of time.
