Ha Chong-Hyun (b. 1935, Seoul) is a central figure of the Dansaekhwa (Korean monochrome) movement that emerged in the early 1970s. The movement emphasizes process and materiality. Ha makes his paintings using burlap rather than traditional canvas, as it was more readily available to him following the Korean War. He then pushes the oil paint through the back of the burlap, letting it emerge through material’s the open weave. He titles each work Conjunction, which refers to the connection formed between the artist and the work itself through the process of making.
