손으로 흙을 쌓고 꼬집으면서 ‘기’를 만드는 것이 저의 작업입니다. 전통적이고 일상적인 ‘기’의 형태에 바탕을 두고 있지만, 형태를 적극적으로 변형하거나 조합하여 비일상적이고 낯선 형태를 만들기도 합니다. 그래서 저의 작업을 한데 모아 보면 부드러운 재질과 눈에 익숙한 형태 때문에 편안함을 느끼게 되지만, 곧 다소 생경한 형태를 발견하면 약간의 긴장감도 느끼게 됩니다. 이처럼 ‘기’라는 형식 속에 일상성과 비일상성을 동시에 담을 수 있다는 것을 이번 전시에 보이려고 합니다.

My work is hand-built vessels, ranging from tableware to sculptural vessels. I made pots based on traditional figures and techniques, expanding my work into an unusual area by aggressively transforming the form. Putting my works together gives me a comfortable feeling because of their textures and forms, but the audience can be surprised by the unusual vessels.
