SeoulKim Tschang-Yeul: The Path
The Path concentrates on the subject of ‘text,’ which, along with water drops, creates a grand vein of Kim Tschang-Yeul’s artistic oeuvre. In Recurrence, the artist attempted to merge water drops that symbolize life, purity, and purification and text that symbolizes reason, duty, and civilization. The text that appears on his works of the Recurrence series reveals as the strong presence as the water drops glisteningly painted on the canvas. Despite its vital significance, especially in its content and formality, and the considerable room for further interpretation, text has not received the well-deserved degree of attention and research. Galley Hyundai invites the viewers to experience the ‘path’ of ideal and truth that the artist has pursued by painting multiple phrases of Thousand-Character Classic and Tao Te Ching.
