Woo Jong Taek, Ink and Watercolor on Paper
Woo Jong Taek (born 1973) paints with ink and watercolors on both sides of the paper, combining the ancient techniques of Goryeo Dynasty Buddhist painting with modern techniques to create compositions that are deeply contemplative meditations on our modern times, casting the 21st Century everyman as Bodhisattva, offering us a thoughtful way to see our world. Woo is in touch with Korea's ancient history while he is also informed by the modern minjung 'people's movement' in art. His paintings are a rare and paradoxical combination of bold brushwork and sensitive rendering, and characters that seem timid, but are confident in their compassion. They reward repeated viewing with a variety of emotions, ‘hope’ being chief among them. Frame: 48.5 x 23.5 inches, 123.5 x 59.5 cm; Painting: 41 x 15 inches, 104 x 38 cm.
