Hyun Ae Kang in Monaco

New York From 10 September to 10 December 2020

Presentation
We are thrilled to announce upcoming Solo Show “Dansaekhwa” of a famous Korean artist Hyun Ae Kangin Monaco: 27 Boulevard des Moulins.

Hyun Ae Kang represents 2nd generation of Korean Dansaekhwa - “monochrome painting” – a style of abstract painting that arose during the second half of the 1970s, combining Korean aesthetics and Far Eastern philosophy with Western modernist practice. Dansaekhwa artists used the ideas of ancient eastern philosophical schools, in particular Buddhism and Taoism, to explain their work, which was, rather, an artistic act.
If you look closely at the details of the paintings of artists of this movement, you can see that the surface is composed of numerous small textures of the material, made by countless repeated application and removal of strokes. Such a repeated, long act of creation reminds the long and very painful meditation of a Buddhist monk in an attempt to achieve nirvana.

Being a deeply religious person, Hyun spends a lot of time in prayers before starting work. She continues the dialogue with the sacred:
"All the touches and strokes I use are inscriptions of the dialogues with the sacred. These inscriptions are based on Korean alphabet characters and glyphs. When I create my reliefs onto the canvases, I think of myself as a scribe that is carving messages from the heavenly force into the worldly materials of stones and pumice. And with these inscriptions, I hope viewers will be able to reflect upon them and gain insights they could have not achieved beforehand." - Hyun Ae Kang.
