“The first version of the work stemmed from emotions the artist felt while taking a photo, the emotions related to the photo were happiness and mischief. Subsequently, in the second version the emotions have transformed and in the same way the work has evolved. It is no coincidence that Taedong works with his emotions, memories and feelings in relation to experiences he makes of the perceptible world. The colors are vivid and reflect the interior of the artist who represents a boy at the top of a flight of stairs, surrounded by a natural landscape at night.”
