The Photographic and Sculptural Blend of Osang Gwon

The artwork of Korean artist Gwon Osang is a unique blend of photography and sculpture.  He begins by extensively photographing his subjects, then attaching the photographs to plaster sculptures and molds.  The result is a strange mix of two and thee dimensions.  Also, while the sculptures may point to classical bronze and marble statues, the photos and poses are much more reminiscent of fashion photography.  Thus, the sculptures seem simultaneously heavy and light in physical weight as well as seriousness.  They’re especially fitting for a time marked by the abundance of images and hyper-documentation.

Rooms with a View 

This exhibition focuses on a subject treasured by the Romantics: the view through an open window. German, French, Danish, and Russian artists first took up the theme in the second decade of the nineteenth century.

Juxtaposing near and far, the window is a metaphor for unfulfilled longing. Painters distilled this feeling in pictures of hushed, spare rooms with contemplative figures; studios with artists at work; and open windows as the sole motif. As the exhibition reveals, these pictures may shift markedly in tone, yet they share a distinct absence of the anecdote and narrative that characterized earlier genre painting.”
