This event has ended.

Shin Sangho is a remarkable artist in every aspect of his work. Having helped revive Korean ceramics, updating more or less traditional forms and materials with his own versions of Buncheong ware in the eighties and early nineties, he has changed his direction dramatically since then. After extensive travels abroad-to America, Europe and especially to Africa-he was inspired to commence work in what he calls his "Dream" series, a strong, energetic production of mostly animal forms, imposing images of heads but also of plates and jars which developed in the early nineties. He then developed his series of "Fired Painting" composed of colorfully designed ceramic tiles. A series labeled "Structure & Force" followed depicting again dynamic figurative bodies after more and more colorfully glazed animal figures. He recently embarked in a series of fired-paintings described as "Wrapping-Future City" works.

During the course of this exhibition which we have conceived as a project room, hpgrp gallery and Loveed Fine Arts will exhibit examples ranging from all of his major series: "Dream of Africa", "Structure & Force", "Fired Painting" and "Wrapping-Future City". For the past year or so, the artist has shifted his gear towards a highly experimental phase in both concepts and techniques. This exhibition will be a great opportunity to discern glimpses of his future possibilities. If most of Shin's career can be described as a limitless quest for creativity, he is now entering a state where his goals are no longer in a linear challenge for change, but in a multidimensional creation through a more complete observation of himself.
