Such an artist Kwon, for the 17th times ever in his career of artist, is scheduled to have solo exhibition on a large scale at GALLERY SOHEON in Daegu, Korea.
This exhibition of 11th-30th Nov, 2010 is organized of paintings and object-installing to show that the contents of 'total life and environment' through necessaries of day life by which relations between the parts of mental and material world are formed and by which the formality is quietly variable. And by comparing the principles of the negative and positive(Yin and Yang) with the rational and emotional part revealed from human essence, the works will show us dialectically harmonious world.
As an artist of pioneer in post-modernism art, the artist's main thought what he wants to communicate with society is not material but fantastic world in one's heart to show to the spectator, through the subjective interpretation toward the things and surroundings variable in our routine beyond the simple symbol of object.
He will show over 30 selected major works overall as major art works at this show that are composed of 'skeleton',' sound.' series and 'Daegu subway fire accident' as the social accident, and 'group of people'-against to oppression by power and his latest work showing significant texture by adding Dak-paper porridge to canvas.
I(representative & director of GALLERY SOHEON) want to say , "Kwon Jung Ho's works that has maintained his consistency through whole art work series and that is beyond the border between beauty and ugliness show the stage of art world which gives us freedom from the ethics and morality, the beauty and ugliness, and he always makes us approach to the basic essence through the aesthetic of skeleton symbolize fears bearing tremble."
And I want to say that artist Kwon is the very true and real artist who seems to want not to be abused slave by stereotypes of beauty such as 'Charles-Pierre Baudelaire'(in his poem 'L'Etranger') sang a mysterious cloud to pass neglected as the most beautiful scenery in the world and always trying the new experiment studying about what human's essential problems are related to by the expression of inner conflict of the mental in essential human psychology as the response of mental state to worry ourselves unbearably and endlessly, using aesthetic of 'speaker' to symbolize rational awareness of the system for the thinking and communication of mankind and 'skeleton' seizes selected to suggest mental pains and being seized with fear.
In this time Artist Kwon also takes part in 'Daegu International Art Fair 2010' besides his "Solo Exhibition at GALLERY SOHEON", and after that show, he has another follow-up plan of "Solo Show at 'Kunst Doc' gallery" in Seoul. He shows overflowing passion and challenging spirit by endless effort and draws public attention from the art market to find a way to make a living out of stagnation in art market and to prepare provisions for the favorable art market.
As a director of GALLERY, I think Kwon to be loved much more in huge art market like 'Shanghai', 'Beijing, in China and 'Hong Kong' 'Singapore', and GALLERY SOHEON will also do the best to promote and introduce this eminent artist.
This exhibition will be going at the both venue 'GALLERY SOHEON' & 'SOHEON Contemporary' from 11th November to the end of the month. [Chang-Ho, Won_ representative & director of GALLERY SOHEON]
