This week we are happy to present to you the incredible wall drawings/murals of Heeseop Yoon.
Korean born, NYC based Heeseop Yoon is not scared of scale. Her impressive wall drawings cover gallery walls in a manic entanglement of line and form, swaying back and forth between abstraction and representation. From afar the drawings resemble a mass of scribbles weaving through one another but as you get closer you realize that the dense drawings are actually layer upon layer of furniture, clothing, objects, and other household items. What’s even more impressive is that Yoon’s drawings are not created with paint or ink but are in fact “drawn” with hundreds of feet of black tape that are cut into pieces. Other murals are created with cut Mylar layered on top of each other to create ghostly images that resemble X-rays.
Yoon states about her work:
My work deals with memory and perception within cluttered spaces. I begin by photographing interiors such as basements, workshops, and storage spaces, places where everything is jumbled and time becomes ambiguous without the presence of people. From these photographs I construct a view and then I draw freehand without erasing. As I correct “mistakes” the work results in double or multiple lines, which reflect how my perception has changed over time and makes me question my initial perception. Paradoxically, greater concentration and more lines make the drawn objects less clear. The more I see, the less I believe in the accuracy or reality of the images I draw.
