<EVER-CHANGING> 전시는 오희원 작가와 차승언 작가의 그룹전으로 추상 페인팅 작품들로 구성되었다.‘시간’이란 공통 개념으로 서로 다른 방식의 회화를 표현하고 있는 두 작가의 작품은 페인팅의 본질적인 의미와 상징을 되돌아보고 있다.회화의 서식처로서 조성된 백색 큐브 공간을 의식하며 작업을 이어오고 있는 오희원의 작품은 시간의 변질적 과정을 무게가 느껴지지 않는 건식 색연필 또는 안료가 섞인 물방울을 드로잉 기법으로 표현하고 있다. 그와 달리 차승언은 직조 또는 완성된 직조 캔버스 위에 페인팅을 하는 기법을 사용하여 비약적 근대화로 시간과 경험이 뒤엉켜 맥락 없이 투하된 서구양식의 추상회화가 어떻게 정의되었는지, 그로 인해 지금 유의미한 추상회화는 무엇인지를 탐구해 가고 있다.
ONE FOUR is pleased to present ever-changing, a group exhibition by Heewon Oh and Seungean Cha
In Heewon Oh’s work, a canvas become a “clear stage” where static nature of a painting evolves with time as it enters a certain space- white cube1. She questions how the relationship between a painting and its surrounding is defined as time passes through the eyes of viewers. The works in this exhibition are a representation of reflecting qualities found in water, air and light. Using color pencil, acrylic and pigment on linen, canvas and glass, Oh delivers a sense of constant flow of the present- a moment.
Contrast to Oh, Seungean Cha creates paintings through weaving in reference of Korean and Western modernism. Her attempt to revisit the era of Korean abstract art in the 60s and 70s and examine the impact of Western style introduced in Korea without any historical context. Cha’s effort to rearrange “the time and experiences that were bound up too soon in rapid modernization.” She dyes the weft and warp threads, then builds the patterns by inserting colored threads or paint on the complete woven canvas infusing references of the icons found in abstract painting.
Oh and Cha share the undercurrent notion of time yet exhibit distinguished form of paintings: one explores consciousness of time and its surrounding relationship to the paintings through light mediums, and the other examines the meaning of abstract painting today- as it was rashly defined in the past- by weaving, a method that requires a set of rules.
