두민 | Do Min

“Dice has a meaningful attributes of life. Dice thrown in the air means a coincidence of life and an unknown destiny and the fallen dice shows the result in the inevitable fate.” It sometimes is motionless in the limited frame of the canvas. The moving dices in the water and in the air is like a cross-section of life. Despite what fate though, the energetic sentiment expressed in the work demonstrates the fate itself is already in the hand of oneself and thus arouse an optimistic attitude like ‘Carpe diem’.

 

As detail as photo-realism, Do Min’s portrayal of the transparent beauty from the reflection evokes Narcissus desire. The image of the work is the result of a performative act of looking at the projection actually throwing the dice hundreds of times until he finds a satisfactory image to proceed with. Also, the canvas does not end with a two-dimensional plane but becomes a three-dimensional by applying epoxy on the image of dices.

 

His quest begins from the projection of desire and attitude of life to the interest in painting itself, and now pinpointing the basic elements such as brushing methods and rendering light. He currently studies whether the brush strokes representing the subtle changes of light can be seen through to the emotional, and wishes to show the power of moving objects in the work. The titles – <Fortune Holic> and <Enjoyable> - infer that he now reached the stage to enjoy the painting itself.
