Exhibitor's Artists:

  • Sydney Cash  (+)

    Exhibition : Works by Sydney Cash have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the United States and abroad. His works are held in the permanent collections of major art institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Corning Museum of Glass, the Smithsonian Museum, and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

    Detailed Description : Sydney Cash explores the optical nature of pattern and movement through painting, sculpture and installation. In his works, Cash investigates philosophical and psychological questions, such as the relationship between the work and the viewer and between the work and its environment, while challenging the boundaries between image and object. Light plays a key role in his sculptures and installations. Integrating glass and mirrors, the artist manipulates light as a physical material, transforming it into complex images composed of reflections, refractions and shadows. His kinetic sculptures created in the 1980s and the 1990s are constructed by overlaying ribbed industrial glass on top of paper printed with various patterns. The vibrating movements, together with the blending of colors created by these patterns, become optically kinetic as they are revealed in relation to the viewer’s movement, thus making each projected experience unique to the individual.

    Detailed Description : Ilhwa Kim’s work is composed of tens of thousands of individual seed units. Each seed unit is comprised of straight lines and circles, each of which signify their own tiny “universe”. The materials are not given, but created personally for each single universe. Kim dyes each sheet of paper by hand with thousands of different colors and cuts and rolls the layers of paper to make it rigid. It gives her an emotional bonding to each single universe. There is not a single universe has the same shape, look, color in her work. Kim recieved her Masters of Fine Arts in Oriental Painting from Hong-Ik University in Seoul in 1996. Her work has been exhibited at several notable galleries and venues, including the Seoul Art Center, Insa Art Center (Seoul), Dennos Museum (Michigan), The House of Fine Art (London), Art Miami, CONTEXT Art Miami, Art Palm Beach, and Art Paris.

  • Yong R. Kwon  (+)

    Detailed Description : Yong R. Kwon creates paintings of dancing light made of hundreds of stainless steel discs axed to canvas. rough a process of grinding and polishing the stainless steel to create a highly reective, mirror-like surface, he then cuts the steel into smaller units before hammering them to disperse the light’s reection. Duality plays a key role in Kwon’s work. His constructions resemble completely empty spaces before the lights are turned on and ll the discs, immersing the canvas and beyond with innite reections. e essence of his paintings is light in all its contrasts – intangible yet captured, massless yet formed, uncontainable yet directed. Kwon’s art speaks to a truth of life, one which reveals that true beauty and fulllment cannot be attained through a willful command, but rather through an “emptying out”, a recognition of individual powerlessness. “My art is light. I don’t use light as a means to complete my artworks; the light itself is the essence and

  • Jeong Min Suh  (+)

    Detailed Description : The artwork of Jeong-min Suh employs the timeless structures of geometry while simultaneously pursuing an idiosyncratic aesthetic that combines cultural references with unusual formal techniques. These elegant and somewhat imposing works are neither painting nor sculpture, yet have properties of both. The paper Suh uses is made out of Buddhist prayer paper from Korean hanji, from the inner bark of Mulberry trees, a resilient pulp that has for centuries been used by Korean craftsman to create everything from decorative items to furniture. Employing a similar technique as those ancient masters, Suh’s Hanji compositions dwell upon the duality of existence and use of natural materials in contemporary culture. Jeong-min Suh is a Korean artist born in Seoul. He received his BFA in Painting from Chosun University and an MFA in Fine Arts from Kyeonggi University. Suh’s works have been exhibited at Palazzo Bembo, Venice Biennale in 2013 and the KEPCO Plaza Art Museum, as well as in numerous solo and group exhibitions both locally and abroad. He is the recipient of the Haengju Art Award in 2011 and 2005, and the Golden Award for Paper Art from the World Gallery of Drawing in 2013. His work forms part of the private collections of Hauser & Wirth Gallery, the Seoul Paper Museum and the Tween Tower Foundation, USA.
