Saerom Yoon puts his experience of nature into his work. From art furniture and objects to installations and plane works, the range of his work is as varied as it sounds. The artist, who lived in Philippines in his childhood, uses acrylic to express light in various aspects of the sky which he felt back then. The straight-lined furniture is the result of a precisely shaped molding experiment. The artist’s handcrafted efforts in dyeing acrylic leaves the audience feeling that his work is art more than simple furniture.
Yoon begins with inspiration from nature. The following process is one of effort to bring the color of nature to the work. The structure of this work is designed as “simple linear shape” so that the color can be seen before the form, with transparent acrylic used for the work material. The transparent colorless acrylic pieces are dyed in a handcrafted manner using a fiber dyeing technique, then assembled to complete the work.
Yoon’s work is not an imitation of the forms or phenomena of nature but instead the result of expressing the emotions of the artist as he sees nature. He wishes to use his artwork to share these feelings with the audience.
