THE DAWN is a project based on a series of paintings called
“scores of silence” with 49 smallsized paintings in 2007 - 2008.
since I have started to work on this series, it is my concept to
create a space where the viewers, including me, can physically
encounter the meaning of this series.
into each piece, I transformed three most important essences
in my artist life such as painting, architecture and music.
the architect franziska ullmann created a image of space and building for
this project. accordingly, gabriele proy composed an ambient
music for the space.
by fusing the three different visions, THE DAWN redefines the tradi-
tional boundaries, no longer belonging solely within one discipline
or another. THE DAWN seeks to cultivite our concepts of contemplation,
meditation, silence and peace.
