All living things must move themselves from birth to death. Without moving, it is impossible for them to survive. My work is focused on the movement of living beings in nature, especially that of human, to express it by using a representative object in nature, the tree.




Focusing on Ahn, Sung-ock's “Alive” series

Kim Eun-Ji (Doctor of Philosophy/ Art History/ Professor of Hongik University College of Fine Arts)

The artist Ahn, Sung-ock began from the ontological symbolism of the tree of nature and focused on the finiteness of human life, the characteristics and values ​​of the finite life, the endless changes and movements that resulted from it. It provides a sense of direction and direction.' Sungok Ahn's "Tree-Life" In recent series, the works are characterized by long lines, as if visualizing changes and movements more ideologically, breaking away from the repetitive connection of short lines. It reveals the meaning of the nature of existence that cannot but change because it can live and move, and ultimately achieves a visual representation of the time of an unstoppable existence. To all those who have not appeared in the world with a free will, Ahn Seong-ok conveys in a unique formative language a reflection on the vitality of existence and the meaning and value of human internal will to live. Perhaps this is a visual attempt at another'axis of the world' that is not visible.
