Osang Gwon is a South Korean artist who uniquely blends two of his favorite mediums, photography, and sculpture, into his works. As a sculptor and a photographer, Gwon creates sculptures with both photo-realistic and surreal qualities. Instead of using materials commonly used to create sculptures, like wood, stone, and bronze, Gwon uses paper to establish a sculpture lighter in weight. Osang Gwon’s artworks do not represent his emotions and feelings but rather shows the present day as it is.
“I would like the viewers to look at my work as if they are looking at a landscape. And pause their thoughts for a moment. In this world, many things contain much meaning. I wish they could rest their thoughts for a moment as they are looking at my work. If something comes to their mind, they can enjoy that.”
