“I do a lot of doodling, every morning and every day, and new forms and new sculptures and anything comes out of them. I find painting is very musical; you just bring these elements and colours and forms and it comes out and harmonises in a new work.”
NZ Herald, February 2006

Born in Korea, Auckland-based artist Seung Yul Oh studied at the University of Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Arts, where he graduated with a Master of Fine Arts.  He created the series ‘Myun’, meaning noodle, when he first started working in Seoul. The traditional Korean noodle soup sculptures are made out of epoxy resin, silicone, steel and aluminum.  The noodles, which extend 12 feet into space from a pair of floating chopsticks, feature sculpted eggs, vegetables and broth. The artist says: ‘Such an ordinary dish that I enjoy became static then endlessly slurping. Beyond its appearance as a bowl of noodle and a reminder of its taste, I am experimenting with transformative aspect of materials and its physicality.’
