Abstract from a published paper called ""The Life and Art of Chun Hwa-hwang: Image Formation of the Consciousness as a Korean-Japanese"".
The purpose of this paper is to explore the nature of consciousness and image formation in the creative processes of the Korean-Japanese people in the postwar Japan by examining the life and art of a Korean-Japanese painter, Chun Hwa-hwang(1909~1996).
The preceding studies on Chun is extremely limited to the articles on art magazines and the essays on his catalogues where his works are overviewed in periods and the influence of his teacher, Suda Kunitaro(1891~1961) is noted.
Based on these preceding studies, this paper traces the factual details on the artist’sbiography through existing references as well as pointing out his relationships with the artist associations and his novels. It also encompasses from multiple angles his manifestation of the consciousness as a Korean-Japanese through comparison with the contemporary Korean-Japanese artists.
The main body consists of: Chapter 1, life and the chronological artistic tendency; Chapter 2, point of contact with Suda Kunitaro; Chapter 3, activities at the Kohdo Art Association; Chapter 4, relationship between his novels and paintings; and lastly as conclusion compares Chun’s artistic world with the contemporary Korean-Japanese artists.
By looking back at Chun’s life and artistic activities, the paper confirms how a Korean-Japanese painter who retained the identity of a prewar Korean constructed a unique literary vision with the theme on the hardships and tradition of Korean people through the interaction with the postwar Japanese art scene where he was based.
After the war when the Korean-Japanese painters who studied in Japan returned to South and North Korea to build new generation of art systems according to their state policies, the Korean-Japanese who remained in Japan were the only ones who were able to observe with the critical bitterness the scars of Korean people through the prewar colonization to the postwar Korean war which led to the separation on Korean peninsula. The knowledge of such history and the present seems necessary in completing the understanding of modern and contemporary Korean arthistory.
