"...Sookang&#8217;s creative process involves laying multiple coats of
pigment onto photographic paper using a single monochrome negative. The
artist then carefully brushes the color, thinning it out in certain places
and removing it completely from others, thus creating fine texture and
accentuating shades. The accumulation of translucent layers gives
&#8220;body&#8221; to each print; with each subsequent layer the images
come into being. Each exposure mediates, as it were, an additional trace
of the subject..."
