‘찰나’는 불교에서 시간의 최소 단위로 75분의 1초인 매우 짧은 시간이다. 작가는 쉽게 감지할 수 없는 ‘찰나’의 한순간에 만들어지는 빛과 그림자를 회화적인 조각으로 형상화한다. 빛의 흐름을 절묘하게 표현한 인물상과 시간에 따라 끊임없이 움직이는 그림자의 순간을 포착한 그의 작품은, 어떠한 순간의 기억을 떠올려 존재하지 않는 환영의 시공간을 만들어 연출하고 있다.

Kwon’s work is imbued with a distinctive sense of time as marking material objects including people in such a way that they become signs of their part in the configuration of moment (the artist refers to the Korean expression ‘Chalna’ which he translates as ‘the very moment when a thing or a phenomenon is developing’). In his painted sculptural objects Dae Hun Kwon depicts highly specific but fleeting interrelations—between individuals performing often seemingly insignificant actions, physical things/objects realized with an acute feeling for their uniqueness and the registration of light. These objects achieve a phenomenological deep realism that is spiritual in the sense of an observed transfiguration of some secular, mundane subject matters. The method of realism the artist adopts is associated both with the careful observation of physicality as a species of truth to materiality and a willingness to place the physical within an appropriately fragile continuum sensitive to a kind of perceptual impressionism. This as a kind of limit case for the real.
