Kang Seok Young

Asian Art

On View: Asian Galleries, South, 2nd floor
Korean ceramicists continue to work with porcelain, creating innovative techniques that utilize the thinness and whiteness of the material for new effects. The artist Kang Seok Young begins by pouring liquid porcelain into a mold. When the ceramic is nearly dry, he removes it from the mold and bends and twists it. He then fires the piece without glaze, creating a sculpture in which the human hand has subverted the purity and symmetry of the cast porcelain form.
