South Korea

Bin Woo-hyuk at times uses words such as “dirty,” “suicide,” and “boundary” for his work titles. However, the use of such words has no link to the concrete emotion arising from his paintings.

He relies on his emotion in practicing his work. He has visited a forest when inspired by some feeling on a gloomy day, a lonely day, or a sorrow or delightful day. The forest is not a cause triggering such feeling but is associated with his emotion. In this sense, his technique is quite remarkable. Bin’s work is after all bound up with his psychological situations, inner complexities, and memories in that he observes his feeling, reacts sensitively to his feeling, and relates this into his painting.
