HANEUNG KIM SOLO EXHIBITION
What kind of painting can calm and heal you the moment you see it? The artist is looking for Zen style, a cultural trend that contains the emotional and spiritual world of the East. Zen style is a hybrid culture and art trend of East and West that has received attention along with the naturalism trend since the 1990s. Zen style has the aesthetic value of visual expressions such as the beauty of moderation, the beauty of blank space, and the beauty of nature, and is mysterious and contemplative. Zen style pursues naturalistic things that contain the essence of physical and mental healing, and that uses natural textures and colors such as soil, wood, and water, that is, minimizes artificial processing. Therefore, it provides relaxation and meditation through emotional stability.
As a result of the artist's many years of exploring and researching the Zen style, he has reinterpreted Zen style in a modern way and approached it as a new visual expression style. The artist defines the artist's own style of expression as 'POSTZEN'.
