About the artwork
Because of its historical significance enriched by traditions and its potential in influencing a work of art, Hong has given the line a central role in his art. But his line is not a decorative element or illustration. It is a line that has emerged from experiments to harness the full potential of calligraphy. The line now assumes a strategic role in his paintings, and he sees his line as representative of calligraphy. Hong says, "Without calligraphy, my paintings are nothing."
