THE BURNING GAZE aka makuha ka sa tingin

~

WHAT YOU ARE GAZING AT ARE NOT PHOTOGRAPHS,

BUT ARE ACTUALLY PAINTINGS !!!

~

~

Hyperrealist portraits by Korean artist HYUNG KOO KANG.

~


~

This exhibition focuses on  Kang’s works over the last 10 years,

ranging from his popular personality portraits, spontaneous caricatures and sculptures to his haunting self-portraits.

~

~

His artworks may resemble a photograph, but these are not considered as photorealism.

Kang does not use pre-existing photographs to create the images, but rather primarily depends upon his imagination.

These larger than life portraits truly commands the viewer to stop, look and really see.

And with their burning gaze I feel them communicating to me.
