Conceptual art doesn’t have to be just about out-of-place limbs and strangely located eyes. won Young-woo was a conceptual artist who painted thick strokes of ink with meok (Korean ink sticks typically used for calligraphy) on Korean hanji (traditional Korean handmade paper). While the images may look simple, a closer examination of each painting shows how delicately each line was made. In the earlier portion of his career, he focused mainly on monochrome images while he grew increasingly more conceptual by adding objects to his canvas later in his career. At this exhibition showcasing Kwon’s
works from 1976–1996, you will be able to examine several stages of his career.
