About

«A WORK WILL ONLY HAVE DEEP RESONANCE, IF THE KIND OF LIGHT I’M TRYING TO GENERATE IS SOMETHING THAT IS ALREADY IN ME» - Hyun Ae Kang Hyun Ae Kang is an internationally renowned Korean-American artist. She represents Korean Dansaekhwa movement - “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. Hyun Ae Kang gained her recognization in 1993 when the Art Museum of Seoul aquired her work for it's permanent collection. Since then Hyuns work has been exhibited worldwide and collected by important collectors in Miami, Palm Beach, Palm Springs, New York, Anaheimand and Japan. Her work resides in the permanent collections of the Art Museum of Seoul, Muzeo Art Museum and Cultural Center in Anaheim, California, and the Brea Museum and Historical Society, California. Kang's work will also be featured in an upcoming retrospective at Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center in Anaheim, California, in 2021. The exhibition will be the first retrospective for the artist in the United States and will showcase works from her early career in South Korea as well as her most current projects. The exhibition, which will span the entire 5000 square feet of the museum space, will include works of sculpture, painting, and ceramics by the Korean-American artist.
