Text Meditation


Juri Hong


My artwork is related to Buddhism, making one calm and relaxed. Since I am frequently inspired by religious materials, I tried to apply such inspiration to this work and collaborate fine art with Buddhism. Not only did I use repetition to develop a series of text-based drawings to create mark-making, but it also made me meditate while writing. Although the shapes of each alphabet are different (Tibetan, Korean, and English), they sound the same as “Om mani padme hum” that means spiritual enlightenment.
