 Past Life Regression Painting (2014-ongoing)

 

Beginning from January 2014, once a month, I experienced past life regression through hypnosis with the help of a professional hypnotherapist. It is an attempt to find and express what is oppressed in the unconscious. Based on this thought, I cross-examined my own visions of reincarnation and past life, which, for better or worse, is a central aspect of East Asian thinking. Images and narratives I see during every past life regression are captured in these paintings.

전생역행그림 (2014-현재 진행 중)

 

나는 2014년 1월부터 한 달에 한번씩 최면 치료사의 도움을 받아 최면을 통한 전생으로의 회귀를 경험하게 되었다. 무의식 속에 억눌려있던 것들을 찾아 표현해보려는 이 시도를 통해, 나는 동아시아 철학에서 중요한 부분을 차지 한다고 할 수 있는 윤회와 전생에 대한 나의 경험을 분석해 보았다. 전생으로의 역행에서 내가 보고 경험한 모든 이미지와 이야기들이 다 이 그림들 속에 담겨있다.
