I remember playing house with my friends when I was young, catching grasshoppers, climbing trees, and running through the fields. As if to guard the village, there was a large persimmon tree at the entrance and a bamboo forest that connected to the village But now we can't even find any traces of it. Because of the urban planning, the village was gone and people were resettled to the next town, but now it's also a place that's been put into urban planning. The plan to efficiently and effectively place human habitation and activity in space, but the sense of harmony brought on by the rapid pace of change has made us look for new places to keep us safe.
As we repeatedly witnessed the disappearance of a long-term life-place, the creation of a new, monolithic, artificial building, and the destruction of a new place of life, the irony of the nature of the workings.
The size of the building that's recorded looking at the suddenly built buildings in a strange way is expressed in a very small size. The complete image of the small brush building overlaid with layers of construction and filling reveals the unseen nature of the building. And if you look from one step back, it looks like a typical landscape painting, but it's filled with a lot of different buildings. It's an image of a real mountain range, but it's a picture of what's going on in the mind, and it's not dictating a particular region.
Essentially, arithmetic begins with awareness and criticism of reality, and is often expressed as an object that forms an ideal in hopes of a better life. But the naturalization that I've drawn is expressed as arithmetic, which shows that it is hypocritical and only exists as a fantasy. I think it is realistic to include the present era as a dichotomous value (a desire to enjoy nature/development, and a desire for convenience), so I fill representative buildings with ink. Buildings painted from various points of view in magnificent scenery are drawn together to form mountain streams and to make korea ink.
