Check out these photos of Young Sung Kim’s paintings.
Notice how there seems to be none of the little bits of reflection off the textured surface of his paintings. And even when I zoom in I don’t see the canvas texture.
Could the medium he is using to coat his paintings be something other than varnish?https://www.saatchiart.com/account/artworks/662192
Look at this video at about 2:45 and you will see him pour the varnish or clear liquid on the final painting. Also notice how he is leaning his hand in the previously painted surface. He’s not painting alla prima.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TozaF_xM2GY
Ok so as you can see I am fascinated by his artwork.
