We are glad to introduce our guest artists on our medium page. Enjoy our curation about the second guest Artist, Yoo Seungho
Yoo Seungho(1974-) is an artist who writes to draw. His artwork can be shown as both texts and images, depending on the viewing distance. He uses mimetic and onomatopoeia words to create an image.
Yoo has kept focusing on the boundary between text and painting, meaning and image. He combines thousands, tens, and hundreds of millions of tiny letters to form an image and it newly defines the relationship between notation and meaning as texts are aggregated and replaced the images.
About his artwork, he commented: My works can be viewed as a ‘write-draw’ relationship. If you look at the work from afar, it looks like a painting, but when you get closer, you can see countless small letters scattered around it. In other words, my work can be images or texts.
I was fascinated by the ‘ambiguous’ brush strokes (outlines) — A phenomenon in which the outline is spread as the ink spreads on the hwaseon paper — of ink paintings and started making new textual paintings. Interest in such ambiguity is expanding to the critical demarcation of boundaries between traditional oriental painting and graffiti, brush and pencil, uniqueness, and repetition.
The words used in these types of writing works are mainly onomatopoeia and mimetic words.
For example, it is to create an image with numerous small Korean letters written in “Shu Shu Shu-,” “Eng Eng Eng Eng-,” “Eong~Eong,” “Yah~Ho,” “U Su Su Su,” “Ju Ru Ru Luk,” and “Eong Geum Eong Geum.”
This is clearly seen in my long-standing work topic, the word ‘echowords’, which would mean ‘words to imitate’ with a rough translation.
Yoo Seungho received BFA at Han-Sung University in Seoul, South Korea.
Yoo’s works have been shown at Welcome to the Fairyland, Mori Art Museum (Tokyo), Seoul Calligraphy Art Museum (Seoul), King’s Lynn Arts Centre (King’s Lynn, U.K.), The 5th Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Queensland Art Gallery (Brisbane), Mori Art Museum (Tokyo), Officina Asia, Currents in Korean Contemporary Art, Taipei Fine Arts Museum (Taipei) / Hong Kong Arts Center (Hong Kong), etc.
