The exhibition “Contours of Reform” is the first large presentation of
the work of South Korean painter Hwang Young-Sung in a German
The show documents the artist’s unusual formalist development, from
classic figurative painting during his days as a student in Paris fifty
years ago, to his own semi-abstract visual vocabulary. Yet, Hwang
Young-Sung has always remained faithful to his motif: the illustration
and questioning of family, society, and shared identity. In their concision,
his works create a universal image that is always formally asking
new questions and developing further.
Hwang Young-Sung (born in 1941 in Korea) lives and works in
Gwangju, South Korea.
