The process of converting the original landscape in various 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, and as the works progress the images, once used as subject matter, become transformed and eventually become estranged from the original meaning. Moreover, they create the unprecedented screen of imagery and texture.
Yoon Suk One’s new body of work is showcased at Seoul's Gallery Baton in a solo exhibition entitled Things Not Seen, which runs through August 20.
