Jungpyo HONG

He has become famous for his sculptural works using resin and molding techniques, which can be called "three-dimensional copies," but in recent years his repertoire has become broader, with more attention being paid to spatial configuration and installation. Despite his masterly sculptural skill, or all the more because of that, Hong has always been exploring definitions and conditions of "art" and "artist" in modern society. Hong's works are characterized by refinement and elaboration, reflecting his technical sophistication, while his theme subjects are quite banal or ordinary, inspired by everyday objects and phenomena surrounding us. For the artist, creating artworks is the act of incessant questioning: oscillating between visual perfection and conceptual allusion, responding to his inner urges and societal expectations at the same time.
