‘Ellyang’ author's note
In the beginning man was born and time started since then man and universe would have been one. But while time of eternity passes egoistic man and silent university failed to communicate each other and separated and did not know their true existence.
But nobody is to blame for that. It would have been only that way. But for anyone of us there would have been a moment when he or she felt sense of oneness with the university. Wouldn't this be because of indescribably fathomless sense of loneliness, and communication with others filled by nothing but pains? I also faced with moments of complexity in life. At such moment I sunk down with sense of deep frustration and powerlessness. Only unconsciousness dominated me. Only in the midst of unconsciousness I could see my true self and could fell sense of stability. At that time I felt that I am one with the universe.
And then took up my brush.
With that brush I painted.
That was the very 'beginning.'
I like to describe that moment as this.
Dialogue between unconsciousness, that was me and the universe.
Content of such sincere dialogue flowed out as colors and dots and more clear and primitive expression.
Accordingly by letters it was too insufficient. Lines and colors and dots ... all of these things are my letters.
Through painting I like to look at my life more sincerely and wish to share healing.
I like to inform what I comprehended through such dialogue or all the things I want to express to everything existing on the earth. In the hard world nowadays, people who are breathing but not living to such people I like to convey message of hope in a little way. I also passed through long tunnel and it was not long ago that felt breathing again through painting. As my life has been changed through painting to all people who feel my painting I wish that my lines may become 'wave motion of happiness' and my dots may convey 'healing touch.'
Image which can be interpreted more openly than letters can be interpreted in various messages. But I like to draw out and show clear message. In future my motif will be more diverse. I like to show mature works which can cover not only people and happiness I used to handle until now but also life, time (past, present and future) as well as things metaphysical.
