Lee Kang-Hyo: Buncheong Landscape
Landscape, Mind and Art.
Buncheong Landscape is meaningfully devoted to the celebration of the grand opening of Soluna Fine Art Hong Kong. Buncheong is a type of ceramics from the 15th - 16th century during the Joseon dynasty in Korea. Lee Kang-Hyo has spent over 30 years to reinterpret Buncheong ceramics to contemporary objects.
Park Yoon-Kyung: Painting Tower
Painting Tower is a solo exhibition showcasing the ground-breaking works of Korean Painter Park Yoon-Kyung. Park's work innovates the convention of painting and provokes the Asian contemporary art scene. With playful, vigorous brush strokes the artist applies bright and vivid combinations of colors across a translucent surface, allowing the paint drips and flows in various directions thus leaving traces of gravity and time into her paintings.
Morning Rise is an exhibition dedicated to seven artists whose works symbolically indicate the rising of Korean contemporary art and culture. In their own way, each individual artists dedicated their works to the Korean traditions and histories and profoundly show their respect to the nation while showcasing their extraordinary craftsmanship and talent.
Breathing of Light
In this latest series, Lee has created works that explore the materiality and phenomenological metamorphosis of glass to examine the concept of ‘정중동’ ‘靜中動’ (movements in stillness). Titled, Breathing of Light, these works predominantly work with a base layer of flat painted mirror and laminated glass primarily utilising red, yellow and blue, with three dimensional wedges of glass arranged irregularly on the surface.
Ways of Water
Ways of Water is Korean female painter Jang Young-Sook’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, following her brief but successful debut at Art Central 2019. This exhibition showcases 9 works selected from the mid-2000’s Water Period of Jang’s extensive oeuvre, including works from the Wave Series and the Waterdrop Series.
Park Ji-Sook: Breeze
The Breeze series comes from Park’s extensive research on organic shapes and colors by monitoring natural movements and its effect on human life. The term Fractal image, also known as expanding symmetry, is encountered ubiquitously in nature due to its tendency to appear nearly the same at different levels. Park Ji-Sook creates fractal patterns that derive from organic shapes and movements to reveal her interpretation of the human-nature relationship.
Marking one of its most important exhibitions since its opening, Soluna Fine Art presents Colour-Fullness, a revolutionary exploration of the connections between Op Art and Dansaekhwa. The gallery will exhibit two of the most iconic artists from Korea: Park Seo-Bo and Choi Myoung-Young in dialogue with Puerta Roja’s Op Art masters; Carlos Cruz-Diez and Luis Tomasello.
Happy Days Are Here Again
Kim created 8 pieces of new works painted with brilliantly vibrant colors, he divided the canvases into two sections, one filled with his iconic big heart figure and the other with the work titles written in Chinese. Other works in this exhibition include numerous birds and blossoms paintings, with Chinese characters like “Fortune” and “Spring” which resembles “the new beginning” in Korean culture.
Soluna Fine Art proudly presents Urban Odyssey, South Korean photographer Kim Woo-Young’s debut exhibition in Hong Kong and with the gallery. Within the exhibition Soluna Fine Art will present twelve photographs, highlighting Kim’s signature of seamlessly connecting the colours between wall surfaces and lines as well as the streets in his photographs.
