For Jang Kwang Bum, a way of visualizing and materializing
the grain of time was found when he came across a cross-section of worn traces of layers of paint that
had built up over a long period of time on the inner wall of an old atelier in the Paris Ecole des Beaux-Art.
If his first attempt to visualize time was this process of transferring the worn-down inner wall
in that old building on to canvas, currently his work consists in the forms of time
that accumulate in all objects and all nature that he is seeing, as well as in his own paintings.
