The unbearable heaviness of creativity 작가 홍일화의 아트 에세이

I am still not sure what kind of work I can put out in the future, however my thoughts on trying to create something better and nicer and as many paintings as possible in order to quench the artistic thirst hasn’t changed.

Be true to yourself 스스로에게 솔직해지세요

Be true to yourself 스스로에게 솔직해지세요

Haven’t I ever said ‘No’ the word I truly want to say sometimes. I became more confident with what I want to say since then. When someone asks me why I did something this way, I wish I could be true to myself and say “Because I wanted to” simply.

Curiosity is the engine of artwork 호기심은 예술 작업의 원동력입니다

Curiosity is the engine of my artwork. When people say my painting of an old lady putting on makeup look quite scary. It is not because my painting exaggerated the old lady but somehow people feel quite differently about an old lady doing the exact same thing as a young woman does.

The imperishable assignment, ‘Woman’s beauty 영원불멸한 이야기, ‘여성의 미’

The imperishable assignment, ‘Woman’s beauty 영원불멸한 이야기, ‘여성의 미’

To an artist, development means change. It doesn’t mean that I would criticize an artist for maintaining or being loyal to one’s distinctive style or the world one has developed after long research and experiments. That is something we all admire, however I am not quite confident that I can continue same style of work for a few decades.
