"The most important part and a powerful substance of energy I think is ‘love’. Feeling grateful for everything that exists and loving it is the greatest energy and the reasons why we were born and what we live for."- Vio Choe

As an "observer," Vio Choe delivers all the information, wisdom, and love in the form of paintings, and spreads infinite energy and possibilities to the audience. He was inspired by the observer effect of quantum physics that while all electrons, molecules, and particulates remain as waves when unseen, they turn into particles only when the observer sees them. Based on this cosmological principle, he contains the most primitive and positive energy, such as an appreciation for existence, and love in his works.

Choe's work begins from his inner universe. For him, painting is another form of language expressed in the realm of instinct and unconsciousness, through which he meets the invisible world. The artist wants to feel the vibration of energy in the unknown world and deliver it without distortion.

Although his body of work cannot be fully explained in language, as is said, extremes have in common, and so are his works. They are based on a firmly constructed universe beyond various ideas discovered by humans or in languages, such as modern physics, Oriental philosophy, and the Zen of Buddhism. Everything is connected, and the energy that forms is unstable but balanced. The artist holds in his paintings the smallest but infinite, instant, and eternal, to make finite and Infinite communicate.
