I tried to capture the color of the calm earth which has always surrounded all things. I lacquered metal blocks partly and oxidized the margins. Lacquer painting can be completed by a number of coatings and oxidation is formed by natural factors for long such as humidity and wind. Through these two methods of surface finishing, I would like to imply the ‘time’ of the land that has been forming since the beginning of everything. The combination of the polished surface of the human-finished lacquer and the raw, abstract surface of the natural-finished oxidation forms a quiet change and contrast in red-brown monochromatic color, completing an object that can be appreciated.

The metal blocks were first partially lacquer and the rest naturally oxidized to create a red-brown, tone-on-tone hue. I thought lacquer and oxidation were the method of surface finish that implied the concept of time. In the case of lacquer painting, the brush marks were intended to remain so that it could be expressed as a glossy surface finish that humans complete through several brush strokes. and In the case of oxidation, a thin coating of anti-corrosion coating was made to allow the rough texture of oxidation to be felt.
