This series is inspired by the traditional Korean portrait technique “Bae-Chae”, in which pigment is applied to both the front and the back of a translucent sheet. As well as conveying a powerful sense of depth, this technique helps to capture the essence of the subject. Hong has modernised the Bae-Chae method by using abstract forms and colours to express the emotions of a given moment.
Each piece in the series is the result of a month-long process of meditative experimentation. Hong begins with two or three core colours of pigment which she paints onto traditional Korean paper. She gradually introduces new colours in a slow layering process until the desired effect is achieved.
Every series I’ve done has come as a bit of playfulness and meditation during the
flux of the process.Each colour has been chosen in a state of concentration. I start
by painting from one to three colours that I feel I could work with and continue
matching and layering. The pieces are crafted over a month until the combination of
light and colour and creation of identity has the quality.
