Shin Sang Ho's RETROSPECTIVE
Clayarch Gimhae Museum in South Korea
October 16, 2007 - March 30, 2008
Ronald Kuchta, a curator and director of Loveed Fine Arts comments on Shin Sang Ho's current retrospective exhibition at the Clayarch Gimhae Museum in South Korea:
In October Shin Sang Ho's retrospective exhibition-The Shin Sang Ho Exhibition-opened at the spectacular, recently opened Clayarch Gimhae Museum in Gimhae, South Korea. A 236 page catalog accompanies this gorgeously installed exhibition organized in three parts and three chapters in the catalog which includes Shin Sang Ho's three most recent series of works The Dream of Africa series, The Structure and Force series and the Fired Painting series. The three series we commented upon in the catalog respectively by Edmund de Wool, of the U.K., Jean-Pierre Frimbois of France and Ronald Kuchta, a Director of Loveed Fine Arts of the U.S.A. The catalog is translated in Korean, French and Englishassisted in the French translation by Daniel Hamparsumyan, also a Director of Loveed Fine Arts. Both Daniel and I attended the opening ceremonies in Korea and enjoyed the hospitality of the artist and his family in Seoul as well as Gimhae. The astonishing drama of the installations at the Gimhae Museum revealed the wonderfully innovative genius of Koreas most well known ceramists, whose command of color most so prominently displayed in his extensive fired painting series extensively revealed an entirely new look of work that has, we believe, universal appeal for the contemporary world of art in general.
