“Beyond the Season” Exhibit Opening
At The Station Gallery on July 25th

The Clinton County Arts Council is pleased to announce that South
Korean contemporary artist TaiWoong Kang will hold a one man
exhibit at The Station Gallery from July 25th to August 16th. An
artist reception will be held on Friday, July 25th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

“Continuing our mission of art enrichment in the region, the CCAC
is elated to include this exhibit of contemporary art in our 2014
invitational artist series,” stated board member Rich Wykoff. Tai’s
use of color and mixed media techniques results in work that is
both electrifying and thought-provoking. His work has been shown
throughout most of the major cities in the Northeast in addition to
South Korea and Japan. We are thrilled to bring Tai’s artwork to
Lock Haven and The Station Gallery.”

Tai completed his M.F.A. degree in 1990 at Chung-Ang University
in Seoul, Korea and participated in several solo exhibitions before
leaving to study overseas. He earned a M.A. degree from Bloomsburg
University in 2001 and then moved to a studio in Brooklyn, New York
to pursue his fine art career.

Since the spring of 2012, he has been teaching at Chung-Ang
University in Korea. He travels between Korea and the United
States during the year, and has participated in approximately
200 solo and group exhibitions.

When describing his technique, Tai explains: “My art is born through
a number of processes. I cover the canvas with a collage of newspapers
and rice paper. And then I paint over the collage with many layers
while writing and drawing on top of the previous layers. I purposely
leave large brush strokes for texture and finally add a layer of paint
to spontaneously drip for the finished piece. I collage newspapers from
many countries that tell stories of events from various perspectives,
which sometimes depict a dark world. Some parts of the stories become
obscured by the painting process, but they become visible when viewed
in bright light. To me, the painting process is like overcoming problems
in reality; the many complications in the real world become one and melt
away under my brush. Painting is a ritual through which I reveal my
sense of hope, allowing the fragments of my consciousness, the colors
of nature and my childhood memories to return to nature and the
unsullied mind of a child. I find myself assimilated to nature in creation.
This is also my hope, that in my returning to nature we move towards
a more positive and idealistic future.”

The public is encouraged to attend the July 25th opening and meet Tai
. Refreshments and snacks will be served during the reception.
