From November 2018 to October 2019, LEESANG ART Co. will host a series of "strange exhibitions". These exhibitions are held every month under the theme of that month's birthstone. LEESANG ART Co. wants to offer modern people gem-like art and gem-like time through an exhibition of artists who polish themselves to become gems that produce special light.
The exhibition opening the new year is "Garnet: True" with garnet, the birthstone of January, from Tuesday, January 15 to Thursday, January 24. Garnet is the world's most popular gemstone and the birthstone symbolizing truth. It is a beautiful gem that generally glows like red pomegranates, but boasts a variety of colors, including yellow, orange, green, purple, colorless and black. In addition, LEESANG ART Co. presents works of interpretation by three artists (Moon Moon-kyung, Biduri and Yang Ho-jung) who are active in various genres, including photography, Korean painting and oil painting.
In today's society, truth can easily be buried by public opinion, media and power, and it is very hard to dig up the truth. But the truth has the power to be revealed in the end by any external pressure or adversity. Prior to this exhibition, all three of these artists desired to convey a meaningful message about the power and value of truth.
Moon Eun-kyung, a graduate of the Department of Oriental Painting at Hongik University and a graduate student of the Department of Art and Therapy, speaks about the power of truth in the face of time, which that comes upon you every moment. Not knowing that what changes in the face of time, which flows endlessly, changes for familiarity, one realizes only after truth's distortion following its change. However, if you admit it and try to correct the truth, it soon creates a new history.
