During FINE ART ASIA 2020, Soluna Fine Art proudly presents a group presentation with works by five Korean contemporary artists: Jang Young-Sook (1951), Kim Duck Yong (1961), Kim Woo Young (1960), Lee Kang-hyo (1961), and Song Kwangik (1950). These artists challenge themselves in experimenting and innovate their artistic medium. The selected works by the five artists articulate and explore the ever-changing cycle of nature, of which resonates with the gallery’s name — Sun (‘sol’) and Moon (‘luna’) in Latin.  

Their craftsmanship invites the viewer to experience the richness of form and color through a multitude of layers. By observing these artworks from different perspectives, they turn out to express an intriguing disruptiveness, pondering questions about the logic of nature and artistic traditions. Through mastering unconventional techniques and artistic approaches, these artists continue to stand out among their peers and draw critical attention in the Asian contemporary art scene.

 

About Jang Young-Sook 
Jang Young-Sook (b. 1951) received her B.F.A and M.F.A degrees from Hongik University in Seoul, Korea. She worked as a professor at Hongik University Graduate School of Fine Arts from 2005 to 2015. Her works are recently exhibited in White Wave Art Center (Seoul, 2016), KimNaeHyun Art Gallery (Seoul, 2012) and Posco Art Center (Seoul, 2008); she also participated in over 160 group exhibitions world-wide, including USA, Poland, Singapore, Japan, Brazil. Her work is found in the collections of the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea; Posco Art Museum, Korea; Hallmark Cards,Inc.; USA and more.


About Kim Duck Yong
Graduated from the Department of Painting at Seoul National University, Kim Duck Yong integrates both traditional and contemporary practices in his work of art. He, on one hand, follows the tradition of oriental paintings by using ancient wood as his canvas, which allows the viewer to sense the warmth of nature through minor details. On the other hand, through highlighting the importance of traditional materials and painting key iconographies that echo with his heritage, Kim primarily explores the contemporary mechanics of Korea society. In other words, Kim’s paintings reveal the change of time with its attribute of intergenerational transience that overarches old and new histories. With works placed in important institutional collections in South Korea such as the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul Museum of Art, Park Soo-Keun Museum, and Gyeonggi Museum of Art, Kim has been recognised as one of the established artists among the Korean art scene. 


About Kim Woo Young
Kim Woo Young was born in Busan, South Korea, and received his B.A and M.F.A in Urban Design and Industrial Design from Hongik University. Continuing his studies he soon enrolled at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and received his B.F.A(1992) and M.F.A (1994) in photography. Not only is he a mature photographer, but also a trained architect, city planner, and pioneer in revolutionising the style of photography in Korea. His years in New York gave him the opportunity to experiment with different techniques and mediums in photography. His images of nature taken in the rain resulting in an illusion of deeper dimension, using other methods such as formation in collage or painting with the composition of charcoal and lacquer on photographic paper; and one major modification was presenting images of nature in an abstract form onto an acrylic panel through silk screen printing.


About Lee Kang-hyo
Lee Kang-hyo has spent more than thirty years endeavoring to interpret the Korean Buncheong in his way. During the 1970s and 1980s, many novice ceramicists looked to the past to modernize Korean ceramics. He had originally wanted to become a painter and as he gradually mastered the skill of applying liquefied white clay to the surface of vessels and large platters, he learned to treat ceramic surfaces like paper for ink brush painting. The marks he creates are comparable to landscapes depicting Korea’s four distinct seasons. Lee’s work can be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Cité de la Céramique, Sèvres, France; Gyeonggi Ceramic Museum, Korea.


About Song Kwangik 

Song Kwangik was born in 1950, in South Korea. Song is a graduate at Graduate Seminar Art College at Kyushu Sangyo University in Fukuoka, Japan; and holds B.F.A. and Ed.A. degrees from Keimyung University in Daegu, Korea. His works were recently exhibited in Tong-in Auction Gallery (Seoul, 2017-18) and Bongsan Cultural Centre (Daegu, 2014); he also participated in many group exhibitions in Japan and Korea. In 2013, Song received the prestigious 27th Kumbok Cultural Prize from Kumbok Foundation.
