Kwon

(b. 1964)

 

Through his works, Kwon speaks to the intangible beauty of art that can be imagined through the manipulation of light and empty spaces, thus materialized by the colors and shape of his stainless steel. While the light functions as a base ingredient, it also imbues the spirit of his art through giving voice to the forms that are already produced. Kwon's artwork, created with tire-lessly repetitive labor, embraces the natural force of light that cannot be controlled by man to produce formative shapes.
