The renowned gallery, Gazelli Art House has a new show composing of two very striking artists. In their different ways the artists aim to create a seamless transition between the reality of the present and the various possible imaginary parallels.
Kyung Woo Han’s ambitious multi-media installations push the boundary between truth and falsehood through the use of complex optical illusions. His works employ a variety of media including light installations, video and sculpture to immerse the viewer in a dreamlike dimension in which they become unsure of what is real and what is imagined. The artist presents new works which utilise intricate geometric patterns on either video or light installation, to perplex the eye and distort objects and boundaries.
Han’s work creates a playful and humorous response to the fallibility of the mind to be influenced by illusion. Born in South Korea, the artist now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. His work has been acquired by notable collections including the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea.
Vittorio Corsini is renowned for his evocative works which allow the viewer to engage with their surroundings through a consideration of personal, historical and imaginary ties to the location. His subtle gradations of colour and form, evoke a landscape setting even inside the confines of the gallery space. For Once Upon A Time, Corsini shows new works from the series Sul finire dell’occhio (As The Eye Comes to a Close).
These monochrome paintings which are almost devoid of forms, use slight nuance in colour to suggest an indistinct meeting of sky and land on the horizon. By erasing all traces of outline the artist asks the viewer to reconsider their perceptions and memories, questioning where reality becomes imagination.
