LEE EUGEAN Gallery presented work by the two geometric abstract artists Bong-Tae Kim and HyounSoo Kyung, along with abstract paintings by Sue-Jin Chung.

Bong-Tae Kim adapts both Eastern and Western aesthetics in his artworks. His Dancing Box series depicts ordinary subject matter in the form of the discarded boxes found all around us, which he transforms into lively shapes. His unique approach involves applying bright, primary colors to simplified shapes against serene backdrops constructed with several layers of painted plexi-glass.

Kyung’s artworks are based on forms and lines of debris, derived from an actual map that has been manipulated through repetition and deconstruction. To present the paintings with a strong color scheme and visual impact, the artist applies clear-cut lines and shapes in strong, primary colors that combine to generate a poetic effect.

While Kim and Kyung draw upon universal thinking from a single fixed subject within a conscious state of mind, artist Sue-Jin Chung assembles various figurative forms from an unconscious state of mind, reconstructing them into one abstract scene. By emphasizing the meaning of multilayered visual elements, Chung suggests deviating from the fixed ideas we tend to hold toward symbols and language.
