Sooman Moon was born in 1962. After having graduated with a Fine Arts Master’s degree, Moon organised more than twenty-eight exhibitions consisting of solo and group exhibitions. He also participated in more than two hundred various art events. Since 2020, his artist residence is the JH Gana Workshop in South Korea.
The theme at the heart of Moon’s works is “the expression through immersion of the will for freedom”. Immersion confers to the artist this sensation of dominating the painting with an infinite imagination. His previous job as an engineer allowed him to develop a sense of very meticulous disposition in the space he has in front of him. This appears clearly in his works as a source of a persistent artistic concentration.
A few words about his set called “Series of Cloud” :
“Time flies as an arrow. As she ages, the rapidity of life accelerates.” This means that there are more incidents that come from tests, and its impact on us is harsher. A lot of these incidents are organised as precisely as leaves of clouds or small rice grains. The artist’s work is opposed to this concept. He likes to try new things and offer the spectator the possibility to watch the evolution that appears from one artwork to another along/over time.
