Sunho Choi was born in Chungju Korea, attended Seoul National University and New York University, exhibiting in solo exhibitions as well as selected group exhibitions in Seoul and New York. 'The language of Sunho Choi's paintings are tacit and contained. Obscured by its context his enclosed idiom has a willed determination to speak without enunciating. Sunho Choi's paintings are defined by this semantic obstacle. To comprehend his paintings the viewer needs to move beyond the simple pleasure of merely recognizing their own aesthetic. When I first viewed Sunho's paintings in New York City during the late 1930's there were pages of text glued directly onto the canvas. He had an obvious facility and his choice of color woked to seduce the viewer and draw him in. The language was literal and the paintings beautiful. He created large, single page manuscripts that suggested a nostalgia for vaguely remembered documents. Sunho's new paintings are more direct and reveal a concern for economy. Characterized by brevity and a concise formal approach, Sunho hides nothing from the viewer. There are no tricks here. The paintings are static; they suggest the pause, the interval, evoking the Japanese notion of Mu. These mute paintings don't describe a single cathartic event but represent a continuous movement, ongoing. Each artist coins a vocabulary that describes his desire and determines the boundaries of his ambition, Sunho Choi's work reveals an artist of drive and possibilities.'
