Forming Nature: Dansaekhwa Korean Abstract Art is our first group exhibition in New York to showcase important Korean abstract art, featuring leading artists such as Lee Ufan, Kim Whan-Ki and Rhee Seundja. A curated and comprehensive group show, this exhibition provides the opportunity to appreciate the concepts and aesthetics unique to this genre. This exhibition will then tour to Hong Kong featuring an exceptional set of works from the same artists.
Kim Whan-Ki and Rhee Seundja are pioneers in the history of Korean abstract art, among the first to appropriate the pure abstraction pioneered by artists in the US and Europe, adapting it to represent nature through organic motifs, geometrical forms, repetitive brushstrokes and careful layering of paint. Lee Ufan, Park Seo-Bo, Chung Sang-Hwa, Yun Hyong-Keun, Chung Chang-Sup and Ha Chong-Hyun are the leading artists from Korean monochrome art movement, Dansaekhwa, which dominated the art scene of Korea throughout the 1970s. Dansaekhwa is one of the most important artistic movements in the history of modern and contemporary art in Asia along with Gutai in Japan.
