Zang Zong-Son

DSC08415-Edit-2.jpg

Graduated from Yonsei University and lived in London, Singapore, and Seoul, Zang Zong-Son (b.1965, South Korea) is a painter who is based in Hong Kong since 2004. Her nomadic way of living in her earlier years ignites a yearning for a sense of belonging, in which she ultimately found in the world of painting. Zang embarked on this artistic journey in 2007, where she started to explore the medium of painting through overseas painting workshops in Europe and the United States. As a perceptual painter, she observes daily life scenes, objects, and people in her neighbourhood, and decipher and translate such symbols and motifs into her artistic language. Zang’s creative process, in a way, is to search for light, in both literal and metaphorical manner. She believes that be they mundane objects or close friends, such ordinary yet beautiful events of life radiate unique aura and luminescence, and thus, Zang’s abstract landscape paintings and portrait works encapsulate its history and her emotional and physical response to it. Zang has been supporting the organisation Rebuild Unite Nurture (RUN), a Hong Kong-based charity that supports vulnerable refugees, and the profit that Zang receives through sales of her works in this duo exhibition will be donated to RUN.
