Whilst looking into new methods of expression, Kim Hyunsik came up with the idea of transforming a flat plane into a three-dimensional and textured surface. The tactile impression would be that of a two-dimensional plane, but the visual impression would be that of a three-dimensional object. Epoxy resin, which features excellent transparency and solubility in water, proved to be the perfect medium to create this vague border between a plane and a solid. This margin between two realms, neither a two-dimensional painting nor a three-dimensional sculpture, is the principal driving force of his work today.
