Korean artist Hyung Koo Kang is highly regarded for his intense and seemingly photorealist self-portraits, and paintings of well-known personalities such as Vincent van Gogh, Andy Warhol, and Audrey Hepburn, among others. As a painter, Kang believes that direct copying from a photograph devalues the significance of painting. Instead, his photorealistic strokes render every hair and wrinkle visible in ways that the camera would not capture: stark and more realistic than what photographs could ever be. This survey focuses on Kang’s portrait paintings of the last 10 years, ranging from his popular personality portraits, spontaneous caricatures and sculptures, to his haunting self portraits. The exhibition will be held from 14 October to 25 December 2011 at the Singapore Art Museum.
