“The work reveals the figurative quality of clay that changes through its own physical, phenomenal characteristics in one round of space and by time and by place. This is not artificial completion through a common procedure (a static product of formative, structural approaches) but an incompletion of the clay itself (a dynamic and conceptual revelation of the changing process). Conversion of thought on the subject and object - In the work, the clay and the body are not mere objects but rather subjects. That is, both I as an artist and the clay are subjects and are objects. Concepts on the clay and the body and the results of these concepts yield my work, and this is shown in the expressional form of art and craft.” – Hoon Lee
