Tina Kim Gallery Honors the Late Artist Kim Tschang-Yeul in New Exhibition

A seminal figure in the history of modern Korean art.

New York’s Tina Kim Gallery has unveiled the second solo exhibition by the late Korean artist, Kim Tschang-Yeul. As the first highlighted his work from the 1960s to 1980s, the latest show, entitled “The Stillness of Water,” continues in a chronological trajectory, focusing on Kim’s experimental work of the ’80s and ’90s.

Born in North Korea, Kim was a key member of Korean avant-garde who bridged the gap between Western European art traditions and his East Asian roots. Central to his artistic practice was a fervent study of the water drop. “To paint water drops is to erase all memories, all evils, and the anguish [to be] destroyed with water,” said the artist in a past statement.

In this period of work, Kim disrupts his trompe l’oeil with raw brushstrokes and subtle airbrush swatches to create a scene that represents the confluence of spirituality and the impermanence of the physical world.

Following the exhibition, the gallery will work in conjunction with Cecil Studio on a monograph honoring the life of Kim, who passed away earlier this year. “The Stillness of Water” is on view until October 16.

Also in the news, FIFA 22 and Nina Chanel Abney have collaborated on a new mural in New York City.
