Baek’s sculptural works of accentuated texture and curviness gain their energy through the artist’s own inspiration from and interpr etation of fundamental elements like light and wind. ‘Light is the roof of all life’ while wind symbolized small movements in life that create the existence of a person. The artist’s marble works exemplifies how sculpture is more than just a form – he daringly plays and explores the essentially classic and pure material in varying textures, volumes, shapes, and sizes. They challenge the existing framework of sculptures being structure d vertical and upstanding in their own ways. His practices attempt to seek and experiment with spaces moulded, carved and engraved in different ways, like one of his earlier works of a cube being drilled in all directions, from inside and out.

Be it textured circles of repetitive layers, or marble-on-marble in wave-life fashion, Baek’s works are about continuous movement and tenacity. They epitomize an ephemeral softness at every moment that can not only be felt but also seen. They portray the meaning of life, the wiliness of a human in every moment, predictable or not, to discover the paths that fate has brought in front of us; the fundamental aspect of human existence.
