Yung C Kang Solo Show
Dec 09 (Fri) 6pm ~ 9pm
<An invitational exhibition by Yung C Kang>
Dr. Kang has practiced dentistry for several decades in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. Before going to dental school, he double majored in Chemistry and Art in college. While working as a dentist, Dr. Kang has always had a passion for art. He reminds me of Dr. Gachet, Van Gogh's psychiatrist. As a spiritual supporter of Van Gogh and as a friend, he loved art and did art.
It's been four years since he started painting again as a challenge and a commitment to himself. He is not wooing recognition from the audience. He wishes to be himself, free from imposed boundaries and established practices. Rather than attempting to reproduce perfect circles, he desires to find joy in drawing curved lines of a bulbous, misshapen potato with pieces of evidence of actual life in full display. He yearns to bring forth what he sees and feels inside himself.
The true beauty of abstract art derives from personal expressions of memories and experiences that shape the artist's life. It may be best to leave critics and viewers to formulate their interpretations, unaffected by unnecessary input or explanation, as it allows him to continue to pursue meaningful growth as an artist. I hope he strives for true liberation by continually developing his colors, shapes, and patterns.
His liberation has ultimately been a way to find art and himself. He stated, "I realized that the greatest freedom becomes possible when I am true to myself. I was lost, wandering in my own life while constantly surrounded by the consciousness of others. I have only recently begun living my life while taking steps to liberate myself, free of distractions from other people. " I genuinely admire his liberation along with his art journey.

“KISS”, for Homage Klimt”
In the acc gallery, we would like to hold a special exhibition under the title,“KISS”, for Homage Klimt”.
Gustav Klimt was a well-known Austrian painter from the late 19th to early 20th centuries, who formed the Vienna Secession and was a representative Art Nouveau painter and symbolist who did not put the boundaries between decorative art and fine art.
Although the 11 artists participating in the exhibition are working in different styles, this exhibition is intended to either be influenced by their own work among Klimt's works or to experimentally try new things through the theme of this special exhibition.
This exhibition was planned with the hope that it would serve as an opportunity to renew the artist's spirit as artists living in the present age, the spirit of which Klimt wanted to reinvent and rejuvenate rather than follow the traditional ones of the past through his works.

Hobong Kim solo show
"New York Rhapsody in the Box - to me, it seems to be that the lives of many New Yorkers are reflected in the abandoned boxes on the street," said Kim. "
These are the current appearance of us living in so many boxes that are unavoidable due to the high degree industrialization. In the Box, people are waiting for train; people are sitting or standing expressionless in the train; people are looking at their cell phone; people are just walking fast to somewhere. New York, a symbol of materialism and capitalism, is the Tower of Babel and idol of their desires.
It is also cruel place where inhuman and nonsensical organic relationships are interwined and struggle for survival. In it, we keep chasing towards something uncatchable.”
Hobong Kim was born in Korea (1962) and graduated from Hong-ik University in Seoul. After graduating graduate school from the same university, he worked in Seoul and won several awards in major art competitions. When he came to New York, he was attracted to video art at New York University Graduate School (Studio Art), and he worked on videos and exhibitions for many years after graduating from NYU. He then moved to New Jersey and continued to work on his painting, having several solo and group exhibitions in different countries. He currently teaches adults and students at Artcom center, a private studio.
