Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Jun Ho Cho

I have spent long time just to find an answer of what is art.
 When I started studying about art in Germany, I was asked for the first time ‘why do I paint?’
 From the question change of ‘What is’ to ‘Why am I’ have directed myself to have motivation of the work I am going to create. The presence of ‘I’ had motivated myself to find the true purpose of work I will be going forward. My earlier general motives for painting should be social problems, ideology, political issues and idiosyncratic shape. However these are not motives for me anymore.
 The only important motive for me is the connection between my ’I‘ and the existence.
 The change subject of ‘why am I painting?’ from ‘ what is art?’ is directed me to grow up as a painter who expresses with faith, and had me realized to be far from the artist who themselves believe as artist become their slaves of art theory. This separated me from an after maker (art-historians, critics who are based on the theories) who values art to become a painter as a pre-maker who expresses sincerely.
 Rather than give the answer of why am I painting, each painting’s outcome of process will represent to find the answer.
