In Unfinished Story (1977) and Ecstasy (1977) by CHOI Wook-kyung (1940-1985), the striking contrast among primary colors in her previous works is replaced by the palette of pastel shades including pink, purple, and yellowish green. Here color, form, and composition devote themselves to the declaration of Choi’s poetic inward mind. The forms gently vibrate and slowly move to meet, collide, and mingle with one another. Choi’s ultimate concern lies “not in what is explanatory or readily readable but in arming the audience to fly freely in the sky like birds by reducing the natural and true qualities of emotions to visual idioms and thereby engendering something like the abstractness of music.”
