Thus, the intensified stroke, passing by traces of ink, putting touch a big brush in once merely, represents a form of eagle is spreading the wings, also in the below deep black ink, fainting a phenomenon which is expressed the oddity of perspective, seems to take a pride its form of majestic mountain.
In added, in view of work’s story in the sun rising roundly that is supposed form of glaring golden flag, is symbol with the light of a wish in our life, touching by expression with ink strongly, that is anticipated the results of optimistic life in with vibrant energy, laying out their tired shoulder in routine life.
The feature of sun and black ink as dazzling as a reflective moment that stirring up the conceit and the five senses, feeling through by unsparing the edge of brush, is leading us what we can feel its spirit of artist with energetic and a free, embracing full of dreams.
Samjoko ( three lags animal ) regards to the living in the sun as a mysterious animal came from legend of the ancient in Eastern Asia, this is why the sun is ‘Yang’ ,three is numbers of sun, regards as a crow has three limbs by means of interpretation in Heaven, Earth, Human.
In the long run, representation of emography excess over inscriptions on boned, which has a significant meaning of re-created one as the present of sensibility upon the origin of three structures as Heaven, Earth, Human. in the part of head depicted it, different from Chinese, Japanese ‘Samjoko’ rooted on difference of an external shape, by hanging on a crest in curling up roundly, like on a peacock’s head and represents figure in the present.
Since it was an emography, therefore, if it were the oddity world of another writing, distinguished from painting it expressed by a sense of contemporary as it merely form as language, in which melted down diverse forms, turns into the life its completion works by brushing only a stroke once. In this occasion in Sweden, the exhibition will appear a large group feature of forms on the plane, are born in gathering with a group among a lots of object that has gone to somewhere, and will be show through this exhibition, dreaming of the ‘Creation’ that expanding the life, and an energy, these towards the infinite space of universe is dismantled by changing forms of universe unceasingly, which from the calligraphic are unfold on a plane to the fine art including concept of space.

Commend by Critics
*By Gary Freeburg
Director, Sawhill Gallery at James Madison University
The Emography of Huh Hwe-Tae is a window onto the natural world that exhibits a captivating dichotomy of movement and introspection. At once, the movement of his enormous ink-charged calligraphy brush over textured paper brings energy and life to quiet surface. The brush is an extension of the artist's physical spirit as he travels over the paper and works with his materials. The results are bold delineations that seem to be casually created but in fact are carefully thought out and fashioned. When the work is completed and thoroughly considered, the surface tension created by moving inked shapes reveals a pathway toward introspection. As the eye follows the movement of Mr. Huh's Emography, the mind becomes free to wander among the welcoming spirits of contemplation and meditation.
“The ink in Mr. Huh's work moves over its surface with no sense aggression or violence. It dwells solely in the spirit of its beauty. His art transcends the logic behind the meaning of visual characters and simplifies the expression of these calligraphic characters for all to understand. The work of Mr. Huh Hwe-Tae is the embodiment of human action and interaction with the natural world
