Hosook Kang
Korean, b. 1960
Follow

Although her work is abstract, Hosook Kang explores the intricacies and spiritual resonances of the natural world in her colorful and highly detailed paintings. The Korean-born, New York-based artist creates paintings with meticulously applied points of color that coalesce into luminous forms. “I describe the endlessly changeable and circular condition of nature by using dots in a general abstract pattern,” Kang has said. “While intuitively overlapping and repeating innumerable dots beginning with one dot, the painting spontaneously comes into a natural form with various movements and transformations that seem to be making themselves.” Kang’s handling of paint, though evocative of pointillism, bridges traditions as varied as postwar abstraction and Japanese landscape painting, distilling the mysteries of the natural world into constellations of painted dots.
