Gallery: Art Supermarket
Opening / Event Date: 21 Nov, 2019
Closing / End Date: 20 Jun, 2020
Soluna Fine Art proudly presents Song Kwangik’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, following his brief but successful debut at Art Central 2019. By applying or scattering paint on hanji (Korean Paper), Song’s artworks resemble a sense of nature and history. He first applies paint to the back of the paper in order to revive its serenity and plainness; simultaneously, he preserves the less saturated areas of hanji that is due to the natural entanglement of plant fiber.
For this solo exhibition, Soluna Fine Art will organize an Artist Talk. This event provides a wonderful opportunity for audience to gain insights into his unique creative process. From the artist’s inspiration and state of mind, to the philosophy and curatorial planning of the exhibition, audience can have the first-hand experience by delving into Song Kwangik’s mesmerizing art world crafted with hanji.
Should you be interested in the event, please kindly RSVP by 19 November 2019 at [email protected] We look forward to seeing you at our gallery.
