The artist explores ways to express the opposing colours of South Korea and England within a single medium. For this he chose ‘hanji’. Britain was portrayed by having a colonnade as the main object in the photo, while by keeping a clear sky in the background rather than a busy city. South Korea is depicted using a tree as a metaphor - what appears at first to be branches are in fact roots; symbolising South Korea rooting of their language through their own ancestors and history.
The techniques to create the images involved the use of photo emulsion liquid onto the hanji like photo paper. Brush strokes were used to bring out the differences between fine and blurry lines to express the weather. Further painting techniques were used to create the unusual effect of the end image lying somewhere in between a photo and a painting.
Ultimately the artist has tried to bring out the beauty of an empty space, which is a key factor in oriental art.
