SANGNAM PARK

ABOUT ARTIST PARK SANG NAM Artworks of Sang Nam Park express roads of city dwellers through duplex screens involving both abstract and figuration. His work can be categorized as an abstract painting in that the work simply lists crude elements of dot, line, and plane, but also as a figurative painting in that it actively tries to reveal a specific subject and the stories relating to the subject. The subject that the artist is actively pursuing to reveal is something that is too common in the city for proper attention: road. Through cracks and scratches naturally formed in asphalt road with passage of time, the artist intends to tell a story of an individual or city people in general about their lives, symbolized by traces...

WOOKJAE MAENG

ABOUT ARTIST MAENG WOOKJAE I concentrate on art as a vehicle to communicate contemporary social and environmental problems to the viewer by stimulating, not just emotion, but sensibilities and memories. In this regard, ‘stimulus’ plays an import role in the expression of my work and in its perception by the viewer. Visually or sensually appropriate stimuli evoke curiosity in the viewer and their desire to grasp the inner meanings of the work. Within this process the viewer not only intellectually comprehends the work but also viscerally appreciates it if their preconceptions are challenged or senses other than sight are stimulated. This three dimensional appreciation-which engages the viewer both physically and sensually-I believe conveys the message of a work on a deeper level. In our environment,...

CHAN-IL KIM

ABOUT ARTIST KIM CHAN-IL The recent works of Chan Il Kim emphasize much more on objects and post painterly abstraction. He adhered objects and oil paints doggedly and then minced them thinly. The skin-like canvas dramatically stimulate the viewer's senses of touch and sight. Kim's works are flitting on the boundary of sculpture and painting to obscure it. Eventually, they have a new physical property. These bas-relief paintings are not only optical but also kinetic. Interestingly, Kim is riding the crest of art history and at the same time. getting his own way. - Excerpt from critic by Park,Young Taek (Art Critic,Kyonggi Univ) BIOGRAPHY EDUCATION 1995   M.A.   Print Making, State University of New York, USA 1994   M.F.A.   Painting, State University of New York, USA 1990   M.F.A....

SONG YU LIM

ABOUT ARTIST SONG YU LIM Yulim Song tells her story through the work of stitching using needle and various colored thread instead of brush and color. Naturally exposed needle stitches and embroidery evokes a more intimate and raw emotions towards the audience, conjuring the audience’s own precious memories and nostalgia of the ‘analogue experiences’ of the past days. Through the artworks, Song seems to shyly reveal her stories that could have come out of her secret diary, told to the audience as if to confess. Looking at the artwork alone gives us a peaceful moment’s pause, a break from the busy life, as it shares a glimpse of its meticulous and sincere craftsmanship that almost seem to hold the time to a standstill for a...

HYUNSEUNG HWANG

ABOUT ARTIST HWANG HYUNSEUNG Looking at every object without thinking about its name and use, anyone will be impressed with the beauty of figure and abstraction hidden in general objects. The abstraction might already be actualized completely in every concrete object around us. Things I draw do not own a name. They are simply just 'things'. I hope viewers can fully feel the property of matter in my drawing. I'm interested in practical and solid force in the existential material world. It is the world felt with the whole body, which is not to be seen as materialistic interest though. The real reason I lay my interest upon materials is that I believe the materials can be a key to the metaphysical world beyond the...
