Circling Identity Painting

Korean Painting: 1500X1500(mm)*2
Traditional 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 by
hand grinding pigments and steeping herbal tinctures. Applying these elements in barely perceivable
layers 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 medium
and scale.
