Dandelion Spores Series : macrocosm / microcosm
….. Changes in the hard-won wrinkles of elderly people make us surrender to the world of the artist's conscience by removing the stereotype one can find in photographs.
They sometimes look like wrinkled rocks, furrows, or even dry fields seen from an airplane. In these sterile and arid lands, dandelions bloomed. These flowers, which can easily be seen each year in sunny fields, are seen with already white hair along the furrows. And some other flowers hover around fields as wind blows. This resembles our own life. The strength and vitality shown by dandelions which take roots even in barren soil go harmoniously with the passage of time and are tantamount to those old wrinkles, witness of exhausting life. [ Extract of the Face Series (Choi Guon -Soo, photography critic) ]
In the Face Series of the artist, the dandelion spores shown in deep face wrinkles are especially made to stand out in the recent Dandelions Series. The image of the face wrinkles disappeared, and on a dough like textured rice paper reminiscent of rugged surface of soil, dandelion spores symbolizing cosmos are emphasized as a macrocosm, and in there, another small microcosm represented by myriad of spores are delicately blowing around waiting for the next wind.
