Touching of the Touch @ARTBN
with works by CHOI EUN BI
, the relationship between artist CHOI Eun Bi and her countless brushstrokes is discussed. Her vibrant paintings consist of layered sections composed of dots, lines and faces to form an overall formless visual.
Choi creates her works by layering purposeful or accidental strokes. This process pays homage to the acts of touching and creating, as well as considering our everyday choices with a sincere and cautious mind. These mismatched patterns touch on concepts such as ambiguity, anguish and flexibility. Although the finished piece is abstract, the various spaces created on a single canvas project agency, each with their own experience and perspective. By finding these “inter-spaces”, Choi is able to properly express her nuanced emotions and sentiments. “At this point, the concept of sparks,” says the artist.
