HeyJa Moon

Korean, b.1945

Colors and abstract geometry are at the heart of HeyJa Moon’s work, where her inspiration from Matisse and Mondrian can be clearly seen in this examination and analysis of light. She describes her intent by saying, “I try to portray the instant light that I experienced with only dots, lines, faces and colors of the basic elements of painting just like Mondrian did.” 

Her technical skills coupled with her meditative strokes, using an extremely small brush, masterfully manipulates light to move the viewer without drawing them in any direction. Her colors and composition are lively and upbeat echoing a rhythmic tone and beat.
