Kyu-Sun Cha has shown landscapes in his works for the last twenty years. He mostly draws the sceneries with trees and mountains. His drawings are not just a duplication of the nature itself, but his expression of his emotion, mostly out of nostalgia for his hometown. In his early stage, from 1991 to 1995, Cha presented realistic forms of human and nature, often depicting the everyday life of Korean farms. Deft brushstrokes, exquisite description of objects,and particularly dry surfaces are the significant characteristics of his works. He continued his experiments on drawing materials until 1998. In the following year, he experienced a dramatic transition as an artist after visiting one ceramic exhibition held in Seoul. After several attempts to apply ceramic-related materials to his works, he began using the new material, soil, in his works, getting closer to the nature under the title of ¡°landscape.¡± Kyu-Sun Cha¡¯s primary drawing style is called ¡®the gesture of soil.¡¯ He first mixes pigments with soil, and then adds glue to them to fix it onto the canvas. This process with soil creates the dry and dusty texture, and further subdues the artificial colors of the pigments. He also has been fond of unintentional effects. His recent works show the traces of scratching, washing, or spraying that he continuously attempts to expand his limit of expression. Along with his attempts, his landscape is gaining deeper sensation of nature and life.
