Cross the Timeline: Korean Ceramics

‚Äč

2 - 11 November 2017  |  Han Collection

Schooled in the tradition of western oil painting, London-based South Korean-born painter Anna Paik has for the last ten years infused her Korean spiritual roots in her canvases. In this extraordinary and thought-provoking series of Still Lifes, Paik captures the essence of the human heart through images which evoke the simplicity and purity of Korean Ceramic bowls.

 

Composed in subtly modulated silvery light and shadow, Paik’s quietly shimmering brushstrokes recall classical ‘sfumato’. Paik transforms the image of a single vessel into a permanent tableau for visual meditation and contemplation.  Read more

Between HEART & MIND

20th Sep - 30st Sep 2017  |  Han Collection

This exhibition is an exploration of the space between one’s heart and mind and through a quiet contemplation and meditation over one’s thoughts and the yin-yang forces in the world.

 

This is illustrated by Soon Yul Kang’s expert usage of traditional style Korean mulberry paper, known as Hanji, which has ritualistic aspects in making and practical side in living. With using powerful and emotive words such as Love, Heart/Mind and Mother, these words are handwritten and then collaged to form the artworks; using contrasting colours, such as blue and red and black and white, she imbues the artworks with a sense of peace, yet thoughtfulness.
