12 July

There is a powerful sense of the sublime in Min-Woo Bang's skyscapes.  Although each composition hints of a familiar place - executed in a language suggestive of 16th and 17th century European painting - each window to the sky is also a transitional space, where shapes re-form, light changes and time passes. The nuanced concepts of loss, renewal and impermanence are of great interest to Min-Woo Bang and these works allude to the notion of transience in the objective world as well as in the shifting states of our emotions.

"In mood and temper, sometimes the clouds touch down on a neo-classical landscape, at other times the clouds are all that there is... the viewer never gets tired of looking at them" - 'Art Collector' magazine.
