Life's stories carved by a knife [Artist InJoo,kang ]

His name is In Joo Kang . Born in Sacheon city kyungnam province of south korea.
Graduate from Hong-ik university in incheon city ( Major in western paintings).

He is an artist, but he isn't interested in painting stills. He wants to reflect the qualitg and the meaning that an object has, not just by making the picture plane with it's shapes.
The lines made by the knifes can create an object. Eventually the object is revealed to
our eyes.

It's not clear at first. with a little focus our eyes can clearly see his art. It reminds the
artist of a story he wants to share with us. The art is not pleasure for the moment, but
rather a mature emotion that we can continue to feel day after day. As artists, there is a string attached to his works.

A fate or inevitabilitg between an artist and his work. Before talking about his works,
the artist wants to express his life through the painted lines he makes by scraping the
canvas with his knife.

His whole life has been painting. His strenght to continue as his only livelihood is
expressed in his works walkig only one way. There is a scenery catching the artist's
attention around the atelier. Faint and old it couldn't be for gotten forever.

At this age in life, an image can overlap with other lives. In that, we feel emotion and
empathize the life of the artist. He wants to depict a phase from thw storm to the true
nature of the pureness of life as if an artist's mind condition may be spoken.

And his work could be born again as a strong masterpiece. His works represents his
philosophy that is expressed with friendly aspect for life.

He says what is our life?
We can see his attitude about his life. That he can embrace everything warmly in his
works. He seems to say what our life is with all of his heart. Life, it must endure with a
long life, just like the process of his work.
