Circling Identity Painting
Korean Painting: 1500X1500(mm)*2Traditional ground pigments and herb tincture on Hanji paper
Another experiment in labor intensive ritual, Circling Identity Painting utilizes ancient traditional Korean coloring techniques that require hundreds of painted layers. I created custom paints byhand grinding pigments and steeping herbal tinctures. Applying these elements in barely perceivablelayers six times per day, colors of poetic depth slowly emerged over the course of two months.I intended this piece as parallel to my other ritualistic work and as an investigation of a new mediumand scale.
