Yoon Suk One (b. 1983, Korea)

By choosing the images of statues made in various periods and places, the artist has focused on the imprint of the time contained in the statues in which their outer appearance has been transformed by erosion, weathering, natural disaster or war. The artist creates new scenery by adding his state of mind as he accepts the scene of the statues as a landscape.The process of converting the original landscape in diverse ways like maximizing or deleting the texture of the original scenery could be called a psychologically duplicating process of recording what is already gone and what is about to fade away. Ceaselessly retracing the irreversibility of time, his works have conducted the utmost involvement of emotions. As the works progress the images, once used as a subject matter, they become transformed and eventually become estranged from the original meaning. Moreover, they create the unprecedented screen of imagery and texture.
