MECHA - Seung Pyo Hong (solo exhibition) @ BEARSPACE

Private View: 09 April 2010 6.30 - 8.30pm
BEARSPACE is pleased to present MECHA, new large scale drawings and metal plate etchings by Korean artist Seung Pyo Hong, in his first ever solo exhibition.
Hong has created a range of new works for the exhibition. Having previously worked in a variety of mediums, including installation, oil pastels and etching, Hong has produced a collection of hand drawings and paintings, combining a number of production methods creating his own personal style.
His work depicts complex imagery of the organic and the mechanical. Hong believes that our habitat is now made up of technology and machinery, as opposed to a natural environment. This environment is affective and influential within our lives, eventually becoming our reason for evolution. The artist has created a comment on the current social and economic world, through the anthropomorphism of the machinery he depicts. He presents ideas of conflict, opposition, metamorphosis and process.
