The ceramic powder works by Yoon Heechang were developed with the intention of representing the land by the land itself (having the land represent itself). By visiting domestic and foreign rivers, he gathers the natural materials and fires them in high temperatures to produce tiny shavings of ceramic material, making pigments for his paintings. By using these natural materials as art materials the artist represents an abstracted landscape and reveals the virtues of the land itself, almost as he is seeking out the relationship between
humanity and the natural world.
In his work the artist seeks to explore the connections between space, objects and
the viewer, and the sense of harmony, lightness,
quietude and serenity are common feelings when appreciating his artworks.
