KIM, TSCHANG-YEUL

Kim, Tschang Yeul has been working on waterdrop painting for a long time. Still, he is painting drops of water.
It seems like that he has a special reason which makes him keep working on it. However, he keeps silence about the reason. He even doesn't feel the necessity to explain it. On the contrary, he thinks that he should not talk about it. He will keep painting waterdrops tomorrow and the day after tomorrow without a word. He will just continue to do it without any big changes.

When Kim makes a drop of water on canvas, the drop becomes a certain "thing" and is given an official form. It becomes an established fact. Despite, he keeps making another drops on another canvas as usual. This is not just a habitual thing for him. Like a training monk who is working bending himself forward for hours and days, he repeats the process. This is because the waterdrops filled with light are awaiting his calls in his studio. Like always, he concentrates on his work.
