We can’t deny the existence of the present though we have the past, even the remotest past; the most part of which is covered under the curtain of eternal time, though some elements & forms of that past are inherent in the present & that past mentioned before & the existing present are flowing toward the future. In spite of this fact its significance is being changed in the hands of some individuals or by societal impact. At present the past is felt by us through reading, seeing, herring ( literature, history etc ) & through imagination which is beyond the radius of authentic history. In this way, we’re floating over the flow of time eternally & ceaselessly. The past is the hub & it’s gradually expanding from the present to the future.
Under the law of nature we’re all confined in the territory of time. Our flowing time, our expansion of thought, the whole universe & the dimension of space – all these are confined in some layers. But man advances toward the future violating natural law. In my thought about painting, I wish to surpass these barriers & make a field in which I can freely walk & that perspective will be a combination of the past, the present & the future. I want to clarify that in the space of apparent two- dimension, three-dimension or multi-dimension concepts are punched. It means to tie up multi-dimensional space & time in a particular place or an endeavour to freeze in a special moment – the motto of it is not to make a story or create an event. In the phenomenon of timeless space, it is to build a background full of richness of consciousness with the proper mixture of significant forms.
