with works by Hyoun Soo KYUNG
As a Painter, Hyoun Soo KYUNG works on abstract paintings and sculptures where the motif derives from geographical structures and forms of pathways found on actual visionary map. Once translated into data through specific programming, the image extends the geographic context and instantly becomes decontextualized. Kyung then breathes into its gesture of play in pursuit of classical aesthetics of the sublime, with vivid and vibrant colors producing a strong visual impact that is both modern and poetic. Encompassing all the methods of layering, overlapping, distorting, exaggerating colors and forms, the artist not only creates the color with the highest chroma, but also unsuspectedly dynamic and organic shapes appearing in persistent growth, reminiscent of the very surrounding environment even of the nature of human body and cycle itself.
