Leaving traces of ink stick on empty, white screen, Hodeuk Kim delves into the darkness and the depth of the ink. His work, which stems from standardized frame of Eastern painting, reflects his life-long trial to seek his own means of communication regardless of materials.
Kim generates powerful energy by drastic brushstrokes of traditional ink painting and examines life itself. His work very much speaks about the provision of nature, examining the essence of cosmos and human life.
