Artist Statement 

 

'Frame Art'

 

The concept of my work has focused on the both still image and moving image. The both have been fatefully inseparable in my work. Work starts from still image by visual art and when still image has degree of completion, I transfuse movement to them with animation. Giving a cinematic life to still image, my work explores some unknown point inbetween still image and moving image.

 

For this exploration, I have gone for simultaneous study for the both Visual Art and Film & Video. In my work, every still image becomes a frame, a basic unit of Film & Video, and also every frame comes from still image, a basic unit of Visual Art. While studying the both, I have reached for this awareness; 'After all, image is one, whether it is stopping, or moving'.

 

Since that point, I have set this awareness as my own aesthetics, calling it 'Frame Art'. Frame Art is based on frame by frame animation and it appreciates every frame. It talks about ‘the organic relationship between still image and moving image’ and ultimately, Frame Art heads for the essence of the existence through movement study.
