July 17, 2017 – July 15, 2018
Location: Jason J. Kim Dental Aesthetics, 5 Harbor Park Dr., Port Washington, New York
The AHL Foundation, in partnership with Jason J. Kim Dental Aesthetics, is pleased to present a one-year commissioned exhibition of artworks by Changha Hwang. Hwang’s tactile and abstract paintings will be on view at the Jason J. Kim Dental Aesthetics located at 5 Harbor Park Dr., Port Washington, New York from July 17, 2017, through July 15, 2018. An artist reception will be held on Monday, July 24, 5:00-7:00 PM with an Artist Talk starting at 5:30 PM.
Hwang’s vibrant paintings utilize grids, smears, hatchings, and cross-hatching to explore the complexities of interwoven spaces. Multiple layers of paint and marking make forges and modulate color relationships while simultaneously creating tension and dissolving spaces. The bold and abstract paintings in Alphabet will be on view for one year.
Changha Hwang is a painter living and working in New York City. He received his BFA from Parsons School of Design and acquired his MFA in Painting from Hunter College City University of New York. Hwang has had numerous solo exhibitions in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Korea and United States since 2002. Recent group exhibitions include TEN, Cindy Rucker Gallery; Shades of Time, Queens Museum of Art; Operating System, Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Gallery; Children of Grid, Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning; and Continuing Color Abstraction, The Painting Center. Hwang was the recipient of The Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed Foundation Grant in 2014.
This commissioned exhibition is organized as part of AHL Foundation’s Art in the Workplace Program, which exhibits contemporary artwork in a work environment to create greater exposure for talented artists while fostering easier access and support for the arts within the business community. The Art in the Workplace program is presented in collaboration with Jason J. Kim Dental Aesthetics with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts.
