Daeho Guk

Daeho Guk is an artist who observes the objects with high concentration to detect a change in the color. He replicates the color of objects like pictures with painterly brush strokes. If Daeho Guk’s earlier works were about landscapes that are blurred out of focus, his recent works have more vivid colors due to his exploration of colors, and he is expanding the scope of the work. Guk Daeho has been digging into fundamental problems of paintings for around 10 years since 1995 before he started his oil paintings of scenes that seem like blurry photographs taken by amateurs who could not get correct focus. As the artist studied in Korea and France, Guk has explored the problems of flatness and representation of canvas created by movements of brushes, the relationship between three-dimensional physical object and space, the problems of colors, etc. which has lead him to his today’s paintings
