Untitled III

164cm x 168cm

Curator's Eye

It is clear to see how Du Nam Choi’s successful career as an architect has bled into his work as a painter. Crisp, horizontal lines, compositional balance and spatial order remain central to these abstract works. Often choosing to place the majority of brushstrokes towards the top of the canvas, delicate strands of paint plummet towards the empty bottom, made ever-more striking by the muted backgrounds. Choi makes use of delightful colour palettes that can at once reference cascading water, or a field of flowers. These thoughtful, meditative paintings would suit a modern or contemporary setting.

Floating, sometimes stagnant bars of colors expressed by a series of single brushstrokes, hovering over the field, implies emotional composition of certain distilled feelings in life. Maintaining a poetic, painterly quality on the two-dimensional plane is also an important factor in this painting.
