Our exhibition, Exploring Harmony with Nature, presents the artworks of six global contemporary artists from Korea, China, andTaiwan, whose works explore the possibility of man co-existing with nature in harmony. The exhibition- which runs until October 14th – juxtaposes six artists who have explored the possibility of man co-existing in harmony.
Today we would like to introduce you to one of the artists, Young Kwon.
Young Kwon wants to soothe peoples mind with his painting. Through his calm landscape he hopes that people can reminisce about their own country. A moonlit hill with a lone tree in the distance appears lonely much the same as a lone immigrant away from home. Consequently, rather than calming people’s minds this landscape is disquieting in that it expresses the immigrant’s longing (Han) for their homeland.
You can see his works in our Gallery. Gallery hours are weekends from Noon to 5:00 PM, or by appointment on weekdays. Suggested admission is $5/free for members and students.
