Art is a new discovery
There were painters who partially used soil, but no painter has done such high-fidelity work by classifying the soil into hundreds of colors.
‘You can create similar colors with oil paints, but you can’t express emotions.
It is possible to draw nature as closely as possible using oil paint.
But drawing using natural colors cannot be the same.
The beauty of nature is all contained in my work.
It is the most original work that no one can imitate, and it has the best fit for the era of pursuing pure art and returning to nature

Beautiful paintings are great works. However, it is not a work of art or a cultural property.
I think a work of art, first, must have originality, and secondly, no one should be able to imitate it.
The first paint used by mankind was loess.
He painted cave paintings with yellow red clay powder and decorated his body.
At the time of burial, it was also used for decoration of tombs. The use of soil for painting is considered to be the first evidence that mankind developed abstract and symbolic thinking.
The painter rubbed the soil just like the ancients did.
The earth was life to him.
In fact, it is said that over 100 million microorganisms live in 1 gram of soil, so a lump of soil is just a lump of life.
There, the painter met the lump of life, and with it, he became immersed in painting with a pure "passion of primitive faith." Therefore,
his works created at this time are expressing the vitality overflowing with intuitive excitement in a word.

Knots are scars of trees.
Knots are formed for healing when a tree becomes sick.
The base of a branch embedded in the body of a tree.
A metaphor for'hard flesh'.
A metaphor for the feelings in the heart.
The painter drew life and hope following wounds and healing.
Sometimes realistic images are drawn and sometimes abstract images.
They are shapes that could not be seen in the world.
The tension and dynamism of power rising from the soil of life
