"Water drops have always been the way they are, but it's the background they transform. With water drops as the unique medium, I may see through the surface."
Kim Tschang-Yeul (http://www.sohu.com/a/131644453_488268, as at November 2, 2017)

Tschang-Yeul Kim is one of the most distinguished South Korean artists. In 1961 he particiapted in the Paris Biennial and in the Sao Paolo Biennial in 1965. As early as in the late 1960s he began using opaque liquid forms for his compositions. By the mid 1970s he had developed the 'Water-drops'. To him it is not about a photo-realistic representation, instead he analyzes the waterdrops' perceptible characteristics in a philosophical sense. This way he includes the universal concept of nature in East Asian philosophy into his art.
