Plot Elements 2017

Life… endless line

Drawings nourish stories 

-Breathe-

Currently, there is still a solid reason to continue the element of plot through the point within various movements and directions, which the author sometimes chooses or be chosen to do it inevitably. The (main) story employs various rhythms of life through the lines which are responded to eyes’ perception, by materializing multiple forms of truth through conceptual to visual elements. Value and shadow have been removed from realistic approach in order to reach my own achievement. Once you glance into, line by line, feelings arise - peaceful, prudent, solemn, sweet, vulnerable, hesitated, determined (or the attempt of determination), disappointed, lost, sick, and mad. New perspectives are built while our eyes are reading thoroughly line by line. Each element of plot reveals a short story that everyone will interpret with his own understanding.

 

-Breathing again-   

Each moment of life that I dream to be or sometimes be forced to be, when I look back to those complicated lines and directions, at least now, they have equal meaning. The current ending plot is continuing to create the next lines. As we are aware of our breath, we look into possible sequences of lines, which portray the steps of life through the element of plot. Black-white, virtue-sin, happy-sorrow (life is rather gray) and the features of intense, light and sufficient lines seem to be cohered rather than separated by other elements of plot. It can be seen elaborately in the deeper level. It can be compared to the drawing lines in fine arts which are categorized as following; actual line, implied line, psychic line and line formed by edges. By linking the contrast of darkness and brightness, the diversity and complexity of the lines embrace the soul.

-Breathing in and breathing out-

No matter how my drawings will be, no matter how the story of my life will be, I try to simplify them. In my drawings, my intention is to create the obviousness from invisible lines.
