|CasualWalker’s Rating for Ocean of Silence – A Solo Exhibition by SoonYoung Yang at InKo Centre, Chennai:
9.5 – Great / Excellent
Recently visited the Ocean of Silence an A Solo contemporary art exhibition by SoonYoung Yang at The Indo – Korean Cultural and Information – InKo Centre, Chennai.
SoonYoung Yang deeply inspired by the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, SoonYoung Yang travels every year to spend time in quiet reflection at the Sri Ramanasramam at Tiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu, South India. In the artist’s words, it is a ‘trembling intensity’ that infuses her canvas, a silence that ripples outwards to engulf the world with compassion.
Message from the artist – SoonYoung Yang:
My works require repetitive actions and by doing so, my fluttering heart gets bigger and bigger. Finally, it brings me to a moment where I feel as if my heart swallows the entire universe. Right at that moment, beautiful stories tremble loudly and my paintings get unfolded through a window of excitement. When I closely look into my paintings I see that innumerable existences are filling the canvas illuminated in their own authentic colours. I think it is a reflection of how numberless individuals live in this world. Every single colour brightens up and they accentuate one another to create one pure chunk of colour. There is a wrinkled silence in my trembling intensity. That intensity is more beautiful and that intensiveness is Nah-toom, the projection of the astral body, to become one pure entity.
My work colours the world into a colourful window as the world unfolds with light from chaos. My canvas becomes a small city and the universe, and its appearance gets completed by the imagination of the viewers based on their perception of the ideal world. Although a canvas can be either mono-coloured or bi-coloured colouring of the compacted square units on the canvas is a continuous trajectory of pure colour pieces. I wish to let viewers get drawn into the pure colours and to take time to observe one’s own ego discovering oneself. As the colour pieces repeat, filling and vacating the canvas I wish you to calmly observe and reflect upon existence and absence that modern people may feel and find your path with a sincere heart.
