ARTIST PROFILE

Document
Memories form particular images and are displayed through images. This is because, on the basis of memory, certain intentions are attempted; emotions are displayed; and subject matter, materials, and colors are chosen. The images depicted by the artist Choi Youngwook are the memories and story of his life, which contain their own story within them.
Rather than achieving a factual portrayal, the crackle glaze of the ceramic expressed in his works signifies the path of our lives that seemingly meet and separate as if to connect and come together as one while appearing different and at the same time being different while appearing similar. We search our memories in an attempt to untangle a thread-like story.
The artist draws his own life, but ultimately it becomes the story of all of our lives. The moon jar is not just a simple ceramic, but an image of all of our memories and simultaneously a medium of communication. The hope is that you begin a meaningful journey that wholly draws and communicates your own story within each of your own moon jars.

Choi Young Wook

Over the past seven years, the Korean painter Choi Youngwook (1964-) has consistently adopted the moon jar – a porcelain vessel in vogue among the general Korean public during the late Joseon dynasty (1392-1910) – as the principal subject of his paintings, gradually gaining international attention. According to Choi’s own recollections, some time ago when he was still groping to find his own style and mode of expression, he chanced upon a Joseon-era moon jar in a museum while traveling in Europe and the United States. The sight aroused in him a sense of deja vu, as if he were experiencing something intimate yet unfamiliar. This serendipitous encounter spurred him to start painting white porcelain moon jars, and also to research and collect them.
