Opening of “Byung Hoon Choi: Water Meditation” and Launch of Whitewaller New York

By Whitewall

November 10, 2016

The opening of “Byung Hoon Choi: Water Meditation” and the launch of Whitewaller‘s November issue was celebrated last night in New York at Friedman Benda gallery in Chelsea. The artist was present, alongside gallery owner Marc Benda, Whitewall‘s publisher Michael Klug, and a mix of collectors and art patrons.

Guests saw the artist’s first exploration in lacquer and new works in basalt. The exhibition, his second with the gallery, includes work drawing on the technique from traditional craftsmanship in Korea, seen in pieces like afterimage of beginning 016- 469. Inspired by his heritage, Choi references traditional craftsmanship in Korea, where lacquer techniques have been widely practiced for over 2,000 years. The artist’s continuation of his acclaimed basalt series takes on the form of fountains growing vertically with running water, resembling a scholar’s rock or a naturally grown accumulation.
