Born in 1954 in Daegu, KWAK Soo Young isknown for his works that create a strongvisual impression on viewers.Through paintings sculpted with a visual effectreminiscent of pointillism, the artist engages theviewer's gaze. The texture of paintlayers, hollows,scratches, and rubbings repeatedly presentsimages of cathedrals, blurred landscapes, phan-toms, or even erased memories.By using the technique of digging into the paintto reveal its deepest layers until the backgroundof the canvas appears, the artist takes us on aspiritual journey with his works. He invites usto take the time to truly see and contemplatethe work.By seeking to materialize memory, an intangibleand elusive memory, Kwak Soo Young aspires todetach himself from the real world and preservethe ephemeral and intangible.
