제로 페인팅(0 painting)

완결이 없는 그림을 상상해 본다. 도달해야 할 목표지점은 사라졌다. '끝없이 이어지는 그리기'만이 유일한 목표가 되자 완성된 '그림'은 어디에도 들어설 자리가  없고 '그리기'의 상태만 남는다. 완성은 멈춤이고 이는 곧 그림의 실패다.

0 페인팅은 영원한 시간 속에 있다. 눈 앞에 나타난 그림은 그리기와 그리기 사이의 어떤 것이다. 그림의 끝이자 시작이며 의미가 생겨나고 사라지는 순간이다. 모든 것이 아무것도 아닌 것으로, 아무것도 아닌 것이 모든 것이 되는 지점이다. 도달해야 할 목표가 제거되니 모든 순간들이 도달해야 할, 그리고 이미 도달한 지점이 되었다. 0페인팅은 그림의 현재다.

Zero painting

For me, 'Painting' is more of a verb than a noun. It is an action, it is a process itself. Therefore, the completion of a painting is a failure of the painting. I make an endless painting. It is an endless journey from painting to painting. Thus, painting always exists only as a dynamic process of becoming a painting.

Zero painting is between painting and painting. It is the end of the painting and the beginning of the painting at the same time. It is the place where imbalance turns into balance. It is the place where disorder and order coexist. It is a space where meaning and meaninglessness intersect and the moment when the painting becomes a painting-scape. There is the place that I originally had and the place I always want to reach.
