YUNWOO

CHOI

 

 

Yunwoo Choi’s works are influenced by his interest in invisible and intangible matter.  Books by the philosopher Ken Wilber, along with Taoist and Buddhist texts, have been the inspiration for Choi’s work. Choi’s aim is to express his unseeable and untouchable deep internal interests and spirit. Choi writes in his statement, “I am living with many emotions and feelings. Some of them are instinctual, some of them are profound. In mundane life, some of my feelings seem to have no reasonable cause, and there are no divisions between spiritual and secular ideas. slight and deep feelings. Just because of my endless dualistic conceptualizing, my mind which was originally seamless oneness is divided into numerous fragments.”
