The "Watercolor" series, which is derived from the gradient paintings, is based on the feature of water-based pigments. By mixing and dissolving two or more dissimilar pigments and letting it flow on the paper, it produces a natural phenomenon where dissimilar colors precipitate and separate. By repetition of such operation, it results in a color gradient. The pigments are extracted from resources on earth like natural minerals, metals and plants. As such, by the material properties of the pigments, the "Watercolor" series brings the light of earth and the accumulation of time, and the crystallization of matter resulting from material rheology.
