This event has ended.

Picture Time is a two-person exhibition, curated by Sun You, featuring new work by artists Buhm Hong and Kakyung Lee.

Hong and Lee’s works depict moments in time that are frozen, remembered or imagined in a range of media including drawing, animation, video and installation. Both artists came to New York as international students and currently live and work between Seoul and New York.

In his quietly timeless video, Empty Space, Buhm Hong pans slowly through virtual rooms based on places the artist has lived over the years.

Lee’s animation, Smoke Series-2, created from 120 unique charcoal drawings, is a meticulous and tender recreation of an underwater volcanic eruption in Hawaii.

Buhm Hong (b. 1970, Korea) received an MFA from SVA. Hong has exhibited his work in galleries and museums. Recent exhibition venues include San Diego Art Institute, San Diego, Westport Arts Center, Westport, Kum Ho Art Museum, Seoul, Arco Museum, Seoul and Doosan Gallery, New York.
