<Huh Hwe-Tae, Neither Thought Nor Non-thought I, 100cm x 82cm, Hanji (Traditional Korean Rice Paper), Black Ink, Mixed, 2015.>

This art piece is a combination of emotion and sculpture.  It transformed calligraphy into a three-dimensional art objet and expressed expanding power of energy and life toward the unlimited space of universe.  Originating from eroticism which is the foundation of existence, it focused on the flow of curves to formalize energy of life filled in the universe with many circles and spheres.  The artist tried to express the objects of egg, eye, womb, placenta, lotus, the earth, and magma, etc. in this art piece.

 

<Huh Hwe-Tae, Neither Thought Nor Non-thought II, 80cm x 90cm, Hanji (Traditional Korean Rice Paper), Black Ink, Mixed, 2016.>

The artist expressed his art world with very tiny strokes on traditional Korean rice paper Hanji and wrapped individual piece of paper on Styrofoam respectively and fixed them on a canvas.  Each piece collectively forms the shape of the earth and it signifies the formation of the universe with all the objects on the earth and in the sky.  But, understanding the infinite universe and subtle principles of the nature with human reasoning and controlling them are realistically impossible.  So, high air pressure or low air pressure does not flow straight and they are moving like a storm.  A gate going to the time of future from the time of far past makes a black hole composed of all the existing objects.  Through this gate all the objects in the universe are transforming and circulating continuously.                    

 

<Huh Hwe-Tae, Neither Thought Nor Non-thought III, 80cm x 90cm, Hanji (Traditional Korean Rice Paper), Black Ink, Mixed, 2016>

This art piece expresses maximization of life energy filling the earth and the universe with flourishing flowers symbolizing a great birth originating from eroticism which is the source of existence.   

 

<Huh Hwe-Tae, Neither Thought Nor Non-thought IV, 160cm x 90cm, Hanji (Traditional Korean Rice Paper), Black Ink, Mixed, 2015.>

This art piece is a sculpture expressing the artist’s philosophy with enormous fine detailed brush strokes.  It visualizes a great birth by interpreting a deep layered world of circular life bondage and repetitive eroticism in the artist’s own way.  This piece escapes from the world of two-dimensional art and it shows different objects according to the audiences’ different angles of viewpoint.  It can be seen as a form of placenta in front, fetus in sideways, masculinity in the back with rich expressive power representing diverse emotions. 

 

<Huh Hwe-Tae, Neither Thought Nor Non-thought V, 80cm x 90cm, Hanji (Traditional Korean Rice Paper), Black Ink, Mixed, 2016.>

This art piece expresses expansive power of energy and life going toward an unlimited space in disintegrating processes of the universe formation.  Each fragment is filled with the artist’s visual image by expressing a great birth using enormous tiny and detailed brush strokes.  It shows the right moment just before the point of time in joyous life birth with symbolic nuclear explosion.    

 

<Huh Hwe-Tae, Neither Thought Nor Non-thought VI, 78cm x 40cm, Hanji (Traditional Korean Rice Paper), Black Ink, Mixed, 2016.>

This art piece is a set of pieces coming from a sphere.  Each piece is wrapped with traditional Korean rice paper Hanji expressing the artist’s thoughts using micro calligraphy dreaming of the Genesis.  They are representing the rebirth of new universe by gathering together.  The shape of each sphere represents the heaven, i.e., the universe, each cube at the bottom represents the earth, and each pillar represents a human being.  By expressing the heaven, earth, and human being, the artist tried to express an infinite energy is expanded into a universal energy through live human energy.       

 

<Huh Hwe-Tae, Neither Thought Nor Non-thought VII, 198cm x 120cm, Hanji (Traditional Korean Rice Paper), Black Ink, Mixed, 2014.>

This art piece shows dispersed pieces dreaming of the new birth of life with the objects wrapped with traditional Korean rice paper Hanji expressing the artist’s thoughts using micro calligraphy.  From an incomplete form to the idea of a complete form toward a creation of a new universe, the artist expressed the life birth chi of the earth is striving toward the universe through a human life line.  

 

<Huh Hwe-Tae, Neither Thought Nor Non-thought VIII, 46cm x 53cm, Hanji (Traditional Korean Rice Paper), Black Ink, Mixed, 2015.>

This art piece shows many pieces in front of the gate to the future are disappearing somewhere and birthing again.  Ether specifies all the media existing on the earth and it cannot be seen or touched which is a nucleus of cell or element.  But, it creates all the objects with life power and energy on the earth through mysterious interactions between the Creator and a placenta.  This continuity of creatures is dreaming of searching for the completeness in the turmoil of incompleteness.  Irresistible primitive phenomenon is a kind of energy generating a life cycle, i.e., reincarnation which can be defined as   eroticism.  The artist tried to express that eroticism by this art piece.
