Updated: Oct 28, 2019
Guy Hector, owner of The Art House Global interviews Hwang Seon Tae when attending the October 19th Art Opening: Solo Exhibition, Night Windows at the CMay Gallery.
From the CMay Website on the Exhibition:
"Night Windows, is a solo exhibition of works by Hwang Seon Tae. Included in this exhibition are new works from Hwang’s “Lightbox” series, as well as works that predate his use of the lightbox and two recent pieces that exhibit a more sculptural approach to the artist's investigation into light, dimensionality, and representation.
Using glass as both filter and canvas, Hwang’s lightboxes depict architectural line drawings of interiors illuminated by LED light mimicking natural daylight. Hwang’s use of one-point perspective is carefully crafted to provide a framework of stillness. Light is subject, object, and spotlight upon a minimal stage.
Similarly, the artist’s most recent works play with the implicitness of line and space through the manipulation of the physical form of the acrylic plate. Dimension is contradicted and confirmed by extension and relief of the surface.
Hwang Seontae was born in South Korea in 1972. He studied fine art at Kyunghee University in South Korea and went on to train in Sculpture at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle in Germany, where he completed his postgraduate study, specializing in Glass Art. He has exhibited in South Korea, the USA and Europe."
