Tahn is noted for his attempts to expand two-dimensional line and color paintings into the third dimension of space. For Tahn, space is not merely an object for structural exploration but rather an area where public and private meanings combine to produce a new meaning. Of particular interest to this artist is the process by which a space is converted into media arts.
His works are a reinterpretation of two distinct elements: the ideological Korean landscape inspired by 15th ~18th century artists and scholar’s depictions of mountain and rocks enveloped in clouds and a poem by the famous scholars.
Tahn ‘s works represent ‘perspective of time’. His ‘perspective of time’ represent The current changes from some point in the past and a change of state. It refers to various genres of creative work such as plane, stereo, media art, installation art, etc.
He thought the art is a good thing to express life without being constrained by time and space, based on the humanistic thinking and philosophical concepts of the age.
Everything comes and goes and goes and disappears. Yesterday and today and tomorrow are fading and flexible and twisted again. Not all organisms are fixed, but they are alive.
One fixed can not be fixed.
The concept of ' time ' can be perceived as being ' unable to keep everything together. ' but everything can be accomplished simultaneously in the infinite space of the universe.
The whole picture is visible when you look at the part. Part of his work represents the whole of time and space. These works show how the past and present coexist simultaneously in the past and affect each other through various objects.
Walking on a path here today joining the history of the path. This is indeed the most ordinary and natural, yet most meaningful event for people living in the world. There is no need to deal with the history of land in particular if discontinuity between generations
is more important. The path is called meaningful figurative journal because it signifies one looking at the same landscape as the one observed by his or her parents and ancestors.
This is history, and it is also a magnificent event. Tahn’s perspective of time and space is connecting past with present.
