Choi Tae-hoon's work is unexcelled in its scale and its production method in difficulty. His work, product of steel welding, is also about a race against time. It's simply because it's a time-consuming project. His studio in Icheon, Gyeonggi, filled with sharp noises from steel grinder in good harmony with devouring flames and dull deafening roar, reminds one of a gigantic ironworks. Piled steel sheets in every nook and corner, and scattered finished works in his spacious studio emit a breath of Sculptor, Choi Tae-hoon. His favorite cutting technique is plasma torching technique. This steel cutting technique, using compressed air, ultimately makes minute holes in the steel plate. In other words, by applying countless scratches on a steel surface, it produces granular surface texture like the skin of an old elephant or harrowed paddy field.

  • +Artist Bio

    Choi Tae Hoon, born in 1965, is part of Korea's rapidly developing contemporary art scene which is now beginning to have greater international exposure. Having pursued his Fine Arts Degree (B.F.A and M.F.A) at Kyung-Hee University in Seoul, he has redefined the elements of sculptural works. In making a collage of time that has been transformed into an organic form, Choi uses a plasma torching technique where he cuts and welds not only stainless steel plates but also, the cumulative nature of time. The incalculable numbers of the tiny holes on the surface of the work reveal an intensity between the artist's intention and the unruly nature of the material. Choi Tae Hoo has participated in numerous international solo and group biennale shows in Asia, Europe and the United States. He was awarded the Artist of the Year award in 2012 and in 2006 at different shows. Read More
