Bin Woo Hyuk Korea, b. 1981

Overview

The main theme of the works by Bin Woo Hyuk is own method and time that react to the external stimulation, such as memory and experience. He visited the forest in Berlin to empty out the psychological agitation and complex inner thoughts from past memories, and constantly contemplating and putting them onto canvases. The scenery that impressionist painters had admired in the past showed Bin great peace and mysteries of life. He eventually regards the moment as an ideal directing point which his paintings attempt to reach. The forests, lakes and parks are places he often visited and found great peace and meditation. Bin Woo Hyuk’s landscape paintings present innovative interpretations, extending possibilities for the materials and space depicted. When he delivers the landscapes onto his canvas, he concentrates on them by removing narrative elements rather than conveying any implications and criticism. In recent works, without familiar typical figures of the forest, the giant plane of the work suggests its original source through only other adjacent figurative paintings. The painting dominated by dark green and black tones relies on its fuzzy sections revealed by repetitive brush strokes, the combination of the hues ultimately generates a mystical gleam over the entire plane. Bin’s detailed exploration of abstraction which inherently belongs to fundamental factors of nature including a tiny part of the water surface evokes sensation as profound as the title of the painting.
