The porcelain pots of Kiho Kang are remarkable for their originality, their discipline and their vitality. Declining a whole lexicon of unusual forms, they compose a hymn to the strength of sparse nudity and to the beauty that is born of a way of working which leaves the surface of each pot covered with the artist’s faint fingerprints. Constructing each pot with typically Korean meticulousness, coil by coil, Kiho can play with his pot’s profiles as he wishes.
In fact, his formal vocabulary has been elaborated to take you on a voyage of discovery where the distant influences of historical Korean ceramics are mixed with the more contemporary ones coming from sheet steel jugs and vases. Rapidly recognized internationally as a fresh new voice, the works of Kiho Kang have been internationally acclaimed. Grouped together, his pots compose interior landscapes that joyfully recall the paintings and engravings of Giorgio Morandi.
