Youn-Seok OH (오윤석) Artist Biography

Artist Statement


My work is a ground of practice where I constantly cut up and twist paper. A spiritual practice or religion in the Western terms is a transcendental world that is beyond one’s everyday life. I want the transcendental world and the everyday life not to be divided, but to be stand on the beauty and virtue of the East as in the state of ‘neither the thing itself nor something apart.’ With my work, I would like to show the joy of practice where the beauty and the ugly, and ideas and execution work together, and the world in which the outlook of the pain becomes art by itself.
