Kim Chun Hwan

Kim Chun Hwan uses a collage technique to layer advertising prints and letters from his personal mailbox into multi-dimensional wall art. Each paper is pasted one by one, creating movement out of a sea of junk mail. He then cuts the surface, showing inside and outside, both surface and depth on the same picture plane, blurring the boundary between them and creating waves of severed folds. Advertising prints and magazines are the objects which represent the aspect of daily life vividly more than anything else. He sees his collages as neither mere exemplifications of ideas nor projections of feelings, but a way of perceiving reality at different times in everyday life and finding the identity of oneself in society.
