      Detailed Description : 3 (three), consisted of three artists, create their work with unique material, plastic figure dolls which are three dimensionally converted Japanese anime/ video characters. By melting and compressing thousands of these dolls into a block of piece, 3 (three) enables to form these familiar objects into atypical creation of their own. Because that figure dolls clothed sexy mini dresses are preferred to ones formally dressed up, majority of their bodies are painted with skin colors. The process of creation begins by breaking the dolls into small pieces in order to dissolve and solidify in a certain form. Afterwards the unified block of dolls is finally polished by hand over and over. The outcome has a skin-color-based abstract pattern created by merged bodies of the dolls. Although it presents an image of destruction, there is also a remaining sense of human such as works by Willem De Kooning and Lucio Fontana. This unusual material is further processed into two kinds of art formats; and painting types of work. The sculpture is molded in a large cast that is in form of anime/ video game character. The molded piece then sliced into some parts to show its cross section surfaces. Finally each piece is installed in acrylic case that evokes Damien Hirst's specimen series of work. The painting type work is all made in standardized TV monitors sizes. It conveys the fact that nowadays the most of information is provided through video images on monitors, inconsequence, the visual boundary between reality and virtual reality has become difficult to identify.Just as old masters had pursued an authentic beauty by observing nature, artists in our age are demanded to look at the world through by digital imageries. 3 (three) apply different kind of surfaces referring diverse painting formats to the painting type work. For example, "65V" has a overall marble pattern incidentally appeared during the process of making which reminds us of abstract expressionism in the early 21
