Min-woo Bang

Mitchell Fine Art

Artist Min-Woo Bang, who is renowned for his ethereal and mesmerising cloudscape paintings, has a stunning new exhibition at Mitchell Fine Art.

Struck with the charm of the Australian landscape and the absolute enormity of our skies, Min-Woo Bang’s primary subject matter is the allure of our natural surroundings and the skies' ephemeral beauty.

Originally from South Korea, Min-Woo Bang has called Sydney home for over 20 years. He conducts field trips that result in hundreds of photos of blue sky and cloud formations that become his inspiration.

In his latest exhibiton, Min-Woo Bang’s works reflect what he refers to as “the inexhaustible immensity of sky”.

"I am interested in capturing nature's transitional moods in breathtaking Australian landscapes, engaging my senses with the emotional and aesthetic qualities of the land and sky that echo human moods" says Bang.

A painting begins as broad colour fields, seductively revealing itself as Bang explores form, colour and light. There is a suggested reference to the language of classical European landscape paintings in his art and yet he has developed his own narrative in his works.

“With the idea of passing time and memory through nature,the physical elements and forces of nature are interdependent in an atmospheric landscape and the experience of nature’s transformation is balanced by a deep, physical connection to place" says Bang.

Strategic incorporation of landscape elements, be it trees or scenery, only act to accentuate what he is really painting – the sky. His compositions draw the eye to the centre of the painting, focussing the viewers’ attention as he interprets the power, beauty and majesty of nature.

Nice to know - Min-Woo Bang has been a finalist in the Tattersall’s Landscape Prize, Wynne Prize, Muswellbrook Art Prize, NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize, Mosman Prize, Paddington Art Prize and the Gold Coast Art Prize.

Need to know - Join Min-Woo Bang in the gallery for the exhibition opening night on Friday 19th October from 6 – 8pm. On Saturday 20th October at 2pm, Min-Woo will hold an Artist talk in the gallery discussing his work and inspiration.

All events are free.
