Seungyoon Choi believes that this is the basic rule of the world. Eventually, he is motivated by it and his work is mostly inspired by this concept — ‘Beginning of the Stop’. There are two interpretations for a ‘Beginning’ and a ‘Stop’. Blue is generally defined as cool color tone. However, the hottest parts of a fire appear to be blue as well, same as the hottest stars in the Universe. This is an example of opposing forces, and that is why blue always appears in artist’s works.
Seungyoon Choi oil paintings follow abstract expressionism traditions and are executed on large canvases with dynamic interplays of colors. All works are from Seungyoong Choi’s collections ‘Beginning of the Stop’, 2015-2016 and ‘Cross-section of the moment’, 2017.
