SEUNGHYO JANG

JANG SEUNG HYO

The work of Jang Seung Hyo is a photographic collage, created from thousands of photography works he has collected over the years. The artist seeks to make his work easily enjoyable by the mass in everyday life, rather than seeking art to be enjoyed within a white cube space for particular people.
The artist’s experience in New York City’s Time Square greatly influenced his subsequent work. Within a layer of buildings and billboards depicting unrealistic images as well as countless tourists amongst a forest of buildings, the artist is processing something that can be experienced only through his senses beyond the limitations of rational judgment. The artist regarded them as something raw and began to make his archives with a fascination over this state of consciousness, capturing them with his camera. These photographs were then rearranged and layered in order to evoke different states of emotions. The artist pays attention to a sensible and direct manner of communication beyond the limitations of language, and attempts to combine his ideas drawing upon a diverse range of fields. Driven to make work that pushes the boundary of art, the artist collaborates with fashion designers, automobile companies, and other modes of entertainment.
