Heewon Oh based in Seoul mainly introduces Dispersion (blooming), an abstract painting with oil color pencil drawing on silver powder canvas. The canvas responds to light reflection and silver powder transparency causes close interaction with the canvas according to an audience's point of view. 

The drawing visualizes the nature of the fluid that an audience views as material, and it intends a presentation as an artwork of invisible products such as the atmosphere and light spread. Transparent moments based on such viewing experiences have been expressed on the canvas. Exhibitions participated include Rays Blooming (Gallery Kabinett, 2021), Doosan ART LAB (Doosan Art Center, 2021), Untact (P21, 2020), etc.

Biography


오희원은 서울을 기반으로 활동하며, 은분 캔버스 바탕에 유성 색연필을 드로잉 한 ‘Dispersion(blooming), 국문: 분산(만발한)’ 추상 회화를 주요하게 소개한다. 빛의 반사, 은분의 투명성에 반응하는 화면은 관찰자의 시각에 따라 화면과 밀접한 상호작용을 일으키고 회화는 바라본 유체의 자연을 물질로 가시화하면서 대기, 빛의 번짐과 같은 비가시적 생성물들의 회화적 출현을 의도한다. 그러한 시선에 기반한 투명한 순간들을 화면에 투영해오고 있다. <rays Blooming> (갤러리 까비넷, 2021), <Doosan ART LAB> (두산갤러리 2021), <untact>(P21 2020) 등 다수의 기획 및 단체전에 참여하였다. 

'Dispersion(AU): Another Universe'는 은분 바탕과 반하는 개념을 모색하는 분산의 변주 작업이다. 이곳은 빛의 반사도, 열림도 없이 거칠고 건조하며 불투명을 향한 어두운 모래사막과 같다. 이 어둠에 갇힌 유체의 운동을 상상해 본다. 

근래 회화는 은색 아크릴 바탕으로 일관한다. 작업은 주로 가벼운 유성 색연필, 아크릴 물감, 수성 베이스 및 펄 미디엄을 사용하면서 붓 자국을 드러내지 않고 화폭 위에 물감을 비처럼 떨어뜨리거나 눈처럼 흩뿌린다. 회화 <Dew Shadow> 연작은 부유하는 먼지, 빛 등 자연적 생성물들을 관념적으로 패턴화한다. 대기의 응결 및 분무 현상을 모사하는 평면은 은분의 반사를 통해 시각적 스펙트럼의 확산을 수반하고, 산란하는 운동성을 가시화하면서 가상의 자연처럼 출현한다. 프레임 화면 위 미세한 얼룩점들은 유리창에 떨어진 비나 눈의 흔적일 수도, 얼어붙은 성에이거나 쌓인 먼지처럼 사방에 흩뿌려지고 발산하면서 역동한다. 


빛은 눈에 쉽게 담기지만 붙잡아서 박제할 수 없는 성질을 내포한다. 내가 주변 환경을 통해 감각하는 시각적 인지는 찰나의 스러지는 것을 나를 매개로 추상하는 과정에 가깝다. 불완전한 것에 대한 미학적 태도를 기반으로 나는 광학적 현상, 문학적 감상의 통로로서 빛과의 관계를 연결해가고 있다. 은분이 칠해진 바탕은 주변의 빛과 어둠에 정직하게 반응한다. 드로잉을 진행할 때 빛이 밝은 환경 은 화면에 과 반사를 일으키고 그리는 이는 이를 다양한 방위로 확인하고 몸을 움직인다. 화면은 각 방향에서 모두 다른 결로 감지된다. 그렇기에<Dispersion(blooming)>은 고정된 그림(Picture)으로 멈추지 않고 관찰자와 캔버스 사이에서 밀접한 상호 작용을 일으키는 평면성과 깊이 사이를 모호하게 오간다. 단어 blooming은 일반적으로‘활짝 꽃 핀, 만개한, 꽃다운, 한창인’을 의미한다. 전기 관련 전문 용어로는 센서의 광전면이 부분적으로 밝게 비치면 영상 부분이 번진 것처럼 밝아지며 상이 불선명하게 되는 현상을 뜻하기도 한다. 나는 이 두 가지 상태 모두를 포괄하는 개념으로 blooming을 사용하고 있다.


Dispersion(분산)은 매 질 속에서 파동의 파장에 따라 달라지는 현상으로 광학적으로 빛과 관련한다. 프리즘을 사용하면서 분산으로 인해 빛에 여러 가지 색깔의 빛이 섞여 있는 것이 대표적 개념의 예이고 그 결과로 나타나는 무지개, 햇무리, 달무리는 분산에 의한 기상학적 광학 현상이다. <Dispersion(blooming)>은 빛의 잔상이 스치거나 서로 상관하는 관계의 흐름을 캔버스 화면 안에서 다양한 형태로 발산하는 추상 행위에 초점을 맞추고 있다. 은색 바탕과 상응하는 빛의 번짐과 유사한 환영의 운동적 상태를 작품명 분산처럼 자율적으로 의도한다. 



Hee-won Oh based in Seoul mainly introduces Dispersion (blooming), an abstract painting with oil color pencil drawing on silver powder canvas. The canvas responds to light reflection and silver powder transparency causes close interaction with the canvas according to an audience's point of view. 

The drawing visualizes the nature of the fluid that an audience views as material, and it intends a presentation as an artwork of invisible products such as the atmosphere and light spread. Transparent moments based on such viewing experiences have been expressed on the canvas. Exhibitions participated include Rays Blooming (Gallery Kabinett, 2021), Doosan ART LAB (Doosan Art Center, 2021), Untact (P21, 2020), etc.  Dispersion (AU): Another Universe is opposite from the silver background concept, a variation of dispersion. There is no reflection of light, no openess, but it is similar to a dark desert that is toward what is rough, dry, and opaque only. I imagine movement of the fluid confined in the darkness.


Recent artwork is consistent with silver acrylic backgrounds. The media are usually light oil color pencils, acrylic paints, water-based and pearl medium dropped or scattered paint without showing brush marks on the canse. The Dew Shadow series patternize floating dust, light, etc., the natural elements with ideological expressions. A plane that simulates atmospheric condensation and mist phenomenon entails diffusion of the visual spectrum through the reflection of silver powder presents like virtual nature while visualizing the scattering movement. Fine organic dots on the frame canvas may symbolize traces of rain or snow on a window, or frost, or accumulated dust particles that are scattered and diverged in all directions. Light is easily seen by eyes, but its property is something that cannot be caught and stuffed. The visual perception that I sense through a surrounding environment is close to the process of abstracting the momentary disappearance. Based on an aesthetic attitude towards the imperfect, I am connecting the relationship with light as an optical phenomenon and a passage for literary appreciation.


The silver-coated base responds as it is to the light and darkness around it. When drawing, a brightly lit environment causes over reflection on the canvas, and the artist checks it in various directions and moves his/her body. The canvas shows different condensations in each direction. And so, Dispersion (blooming) is a static picture that constantly interacts between canvas and audience, and the flatness and depth are presented as a mixture. The word “blooming” generally means a flower in full bloom, fully grown, flower-like, or in full. The word as in electricity terms, is the phenomenon that a sensor’s photo-front is partially lit, and its image part gets lighter as if dispersed and its subject gets blurry. I use the word “blooming” to mean both. Dispersion is a phenomenon that varies depending on the wavelength of the wave in a medium, related to light optics based speaking. Mixing of different colors of light due to dispersion while using a prism is the most representative example of the concept. And the rainbow, sunbeam, moonshine by its result is a meteorological optical phenomenon by dispersion. Dispersion (blooming) focuses on an abstract act that radiates the afterimage of light or the flow of mutually correlated relationships in various forms within the canvas. The kinetic state of illusion, similar to the spread of light corresponding to the silver background, is autonomously intended as in the title of the work, Dispersion.
