Casper Kang

Placeholder
Casper Kang

Born: 1981

Hometown: Toronto

Lives and Works: Seoul

 

Casper Kang draws inspiration from the corpus of traditional Korean imagery, reinterpreting and presenting the history of his mother culture as a formal recollection of an alternate past. The Canadian-born, Seoul based Architect-turned-painter's attraction to the cultural legacy of Korea could very well be described as a child-like fascination that is remarkably uninformed and impartial. His formal intent is objective rather than interpretive, resulting in a detached view towards what the images in his work might traditionally signify or represent. He appropriates and alters (sometimes beyond recognition) traditional Korean imagery in an attempt to create virtual possibilities of his cultural heritage from a perspective that is both antiquated and modern, outside of the restraints of convention or history. Images wrapped up in the cultural context of another age undergo a fundamental transformation, becoming integral components of Kang's fresh new oeuvre that is undeniably contemporary.
