FEATURED ARTIST: YOO SUN TAI - SOUTH KOREA

Yoo Sun-Tai (b.1957) developed his singular style of three-dimensional painting while living in Paris. Yoo is taken with ordinary objects such as books, typewriters and clocks, seeing in them metaphors for life whose meanings are dependent upon personal imagination and interpretation. His paintings conjure up a surrealist poetic world, of otherworldly three-dimensional landscapes and impossible laws of gravity. As part of his metaphoric language, Yoo utilizes Korean characters in his work, adding them at the end of the painting process to create texture and also to bind the images with the words in metaphorical parlance.

FEATURED ARTIST: KIM JUNG RAN - SOUTH KOREA

A keen observer of human interaction, artist Kim Jung Ran (b.1971) is also deeply interested in the philosophy of existentialism, and for this reason she often paints images of young monks. In order to explore the characters in her work, Kim has also researched portrait-painting techniques of the Joseon Dynasty. Through reaching out to the past, the artist inherits a long tradition that she reinterprets with a modern sensibility, portraying the beauty of the traditional Hanbok dress and architectural elements like the Hanok, with modern techniques. Painting on silk, Kim uses a digitally printed backdrop in a seamless combination of the past and present.

FEATURED ARTIST: TAKEHIRO KATO - JAPAN

For artist Takehiro Kato (b. 1980), one’s aesthetic sense lies unconsciously buried deep within memory. His elegant and expressive compositions emerge from the depth of a sea of accumulated memories which are ambiguous, fragile and fleeting. Working on Japanese wood and paper panels, the artist uses mineral pigments along with ink and metal foils to create a world of both real and imagined beauty. His subjects, often flowers and birds, are rendered with fluid precision and detail, capturing their majestic and regal nature while evoking a spiritual freedom that resembles a floating and magical world under a fiery red sun or a luminescent gold moon.

Xu revisits the Tang dynasty’s love of horsemanship, creating highly detailed compositions that capture the majesty of equestrianism across the plains of ancient Chang’an.
