Biography of Min-Seok Kang:


“Repeated fear and hope intersect and I am racing lonely in a maze-like dream” – Min-Seok Kang
In his paintings Min-Seok Kang pictures the artificial element of a car in contrast with the natural setting of the scene. The limited palette of colors and the seemingly unfinished edges of the images contribute to a sense of dream-like state. The inability to see beyond the vegetation might almost evoke a spark of fear and, contemporarily, excitement for adventure, feelings that the artist himself describes, the eagerness to find a new path while driving in the middle of the woods or the cacti.
