Shin Kihyuk 'Landscapes'

Thu, 11/05/2020 to Sun, 12/06/2020

curated by:

Born in South Korea in 1985, young artist Kihyuk shin who is interested in the magic of illusion
shows us in this exhibition 'landscapes' artwork series by using oil painting made on panel and using art technique that uses realistic imagery ‘Trompe-œil’ to create an optical illusion.

The depicted objects exist in three dimensions so that the eye of the viewer is deceived into thinking that a painting is actually a real existing object by the deceptive application of the rules of linear perspective.

He doubted the importance of planarity which has been highlighted since the abstract art movement was on the rise and focused on the expression of the spatiality as visual art.

During the working process, he projects various images on the cube like object in order to select the one which can maximize the spatial effect and draw it on the specially modified canvas. And he puts mythological images or masterpieces on this space in the total new context. This “dépaysement” produce narrative elements showing the double illusions in one scene. The visual incompleteness in his painting makes viewers actively immersed in the works.

His art has been influenced by famous British artist Patrick Hughes who is famous for inverse perspective and three dimensional painting and Dutch painter Samuel van Hoogstraten who lived in the 17th century. + 822 511 3201
