Ben Brown Fine Arts is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of artist Hyon Gyon at our Hong Kong gallery. Hyon Gyon’s paintings and sculptures teem with a raw and fervent energy, as she incorporates materials such as melted fabric, gold leaf, encaustic, spray paint, hair and found objects into her work. Hyon Gyon addresses cultural identity, sexual politics, grief, catharsis and ecstasy in her highly expressive and often autobiographical body of work. Born in South Korea in 1979, Hyon Gyon holds a master’s and doctoral degree in painting from Kyoto City University of Arts, Japan, and currently resides in New York City.
