Moon's large-scale watercolor works are painted in the style of mid-20th century American Action painters like Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. He layers, drips, and splatters his watercolors, taking advantage of the fluid and translucent nature of watercolor, the speed of the medium s drying time, and its hazy, airy nature. Moon s compositions explore the representation of elements with a visual tension created through color, gloss, luster, and texture, focusing attention over the entire surface. He has been featured in eight solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions throughout Korea. Based in Paris, Moon is represented and exhibited by galleries in Paris and New York.
