Août Gallery is delighted to present its new exhibition: Moon Garden. The solo show, debuting on the 24th of August, will feature the latest works of South Korean artist Minyoung Kim.
The contemporary paintings of Kim transcend the medium itself, emulating “drawings” in their blurry and soft hues. The featured works constitute a combination of recurring elements drenched in symbolism, mostly in the form of animals; whether the satirical-mysteriousness of cats, the duality of snakes, or even the anonymity of fish- all intertwined in mystical natural scenery, under the ever-present moon light.
As for the title, “Moon Garden” stems from the omnipresence of the moon in the artist’s works, with each artwork representing a different phase of the lunar cycle, placed in the garden that is Août Gallery itself. The moon is also symbolic of hope, of light in the midst of an ongoing darkness. The exhibition is yet another optimistic attempt to provide the viewers with a gentle escape into a mystical world, one where dreams and contemplation prevail.
