About
2021_05_50F.jpg

Soluna Fine Art is delighted to present Kim Keun-Tai’s solo exhibition KOAN in Hong Kong. This exhibition is a collaboration with Art Chosun from South Korea. This exhibition showcases Kim’s work with his approach towards the Asian wisdom and oriental philosophy. With organic earth elements, his work focuses on seeking the true definition of the origin of the material. In this exhibition, Kim embraced the enlightenment he captured from the Earth material, transformed it onto the canvas with his unique method of creation. KOAN will be on view from 11 March 2021 to 30 April 2021.

 

KOAN pronounced Kōan/gong’an, refers to a story, or a dialog that happened in the process of achieving enlightenment of the Zen masters in ancient times. It is a paradox that requires meditation to train the Zen masters to ultimately abandon their reliance on reasoning and push them to acquire a sudden enlightenment.

This solo exhibition KOAN allows Kim to communicate with his viewers about a timeless Asian philosophy and wisdom on the canvas; in speaking primarily through organic earth elements, his works ultimately express the significance of material.
