Flame Variation (2012-2015)

 

To make the sketches from the Flame Variation painting series, I lifted some parts from my existing Flame drawing work (2005-2009) and digitally reflected details with a mirror tool. I delivered uncanny yet sublime images that emerged from my mind in the strict form of Buddhist altar painting. 

 

불꽃 변주 (2012-2015)

 

불꽃 변주 의 밑그림은 2005년부터 2009년까지 그렸던 불꽃 드로잉 의 특정한 부분을 선택한 후 그 이미지를 디지털 프로그램을 통해 거울에 비친 것처럼 좌우 대칭이 되도록 제작 되었다. 엄격한 규칙아래 제작되는 불교 탱화의 제작 방식을 이용해, 내 머리속에 떠오르던 기묘하면서도  아름다운 천상의 이미지들을 표현하려고 한 작품이다.
