    Detailed Description : Bahk Seon Ghi visualized objects in a way that constantly look different depending on each individual’s point of view fundamentally leading us to question our very existence. This constant shift in plane that the works exist in ultimately forces the viewers to go through the process of self-suspicion that ultimately leads to inquiry.   “My artistic work aims to probe the depths of my mind and thoughts. I endeavor my work to be as close as it can be to my thoughts. No matter what materials are used, my work reveals my thoughts and feeling without damaging the very existence of those materials. Between this concept of art and spectators my work therefore is a mediator. I express feelings I have with this materialistic world to which my ordinary life belongs. I neither want to clarify the essence of materials and mind, nor to reveal the essence of perception. Nor do I have a desire to return the clarified essence to its existence.” -1997

    Detailed Description : Kang Hyung Koo is known for his hyper realistic portraits of iconic personalities from history, culture, and politics, such Michelangelo, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Andy Warhol, Marilyn Monroe, and Princess Diana. Distinctively larger-than-life, monochromatic and visually imposing, Kang's paintings are composed of large canvases much taller than the artist himself, depicting facial features of his subjects, of which the most striking attribute is the mesmerizing eyes - piercing and delivering the lives of each persona. Creating a dimension of intimacy with otherwise distant figures, his resurrection of their being bestows life to his subject by meticulously positioning each wrinkle, hair, and eyebrow, and hence, misleads the viewer to imagine moments that never existed. Kang's oeuvre comprises composite images, finite details, and even narrative human emotions, approaching the pinnacle of hyperrealism.

    Detailed Description : Woo Kuk Won creates images that combine memories and imaginations that come from personal experience. Most subjects within his works include well-recognized icons and/or personified animals that frequently appear in fables around the world. The unrestricted brushstrokes in his work suggest a feeling of strange liberation and the innocent sensibility of a child. The accompanying texts within his works are also ‘painted’ and not written. Woo’s works depict a lyrical world of paintings by using unlimited colors, improvised movement of forms and lines. Arising from the unconsciousness of the artists, they arbitrarily fill up the canvas and speak the interchange of the pure feelings rather than clear and logical reinterpretation.
