Nam Tchun-Mo (*1961 in Yeongyang) represents a new era of Dansaekhwa, the South Korean art movement that already in the 1960s was radically abstract, largely monochrome. There is a unique consistency in his reduction of the drawn line, which he simultaneously interprets in three dimensions. Resin-hardened fabrics give his ideas a sculptural dimension. Lines and surfaces become heights and depths, which he often colors chronochromatically. Recently he developed objects in space, which now finally translate the sculptural paintings into threedimensionality. The comprehensive book is published on the occasion of his first large museum exhibition in Europe and presents his drawings, paintings, and sculptures, as well as their installations in exhibitions and museum spaces in a congenially designed book.
