Kiseog Choi Biography

Choi Ki-seog's new work is an answer to the message of dansaekhwa. Arbitrary transformation of a flat surface, qualities of which dansakehwa cannot express, is represented through the materiality of iron. Hence, his work exists on the borderline of painting and sculpture. The artist says this is neither a two dimensional nor three dimensional work but just a study of material. The outcome of this study will be displayed on the wall or on the floor.

Chol Ki-seog, who indifferently places a piece of iron in a plane shape, presents the very textures and materiality of iron. His work, that put pieces of iron end to end by welding, thoroughly reveals the qualities of the material that melts and hardens in heat. The solid surface and empty interior organically interact through the gap, occupying the space. Its form always looks determined.
