Kim Young-Hun's artistic language speaks the nostalgia and the anxiety of civilization from the uncertainty and discontinuity of life, the fear of technology and the loss of humanity through his painterly surfaces. The complex entanglement of his personal experience of reality and virtual reality becomes personified on the surface through the reconstruction of images from both worlds. Deriving from his journalist background during the transitional period from analogue to digital, his paintings question the media and the technology and how it affected contemporary culture and lives.

Organically amalgamating with exuberant colours of psychological wavelength inspired from brain and electronic waves, dissembled body parts suspended in the air and rainbow like clouds delineate current manipulative and destructive social media and the world. Spontaneous at times and constructional simultaneously, he crosses the boundary between abstraction and figuration and reality and fiction. As the artist states: "I depict detached and fragmented bodies to show the aging body of our evanescent mortal lives amongst existential uncertainty and obsolescence of memory."

Shane Bradford is best known for his "dipping method," in which he immerses various objects, most notably books, household products, and toys, in multi-colored emulsions of paint. He allows the paint to dry so that thick drips run down the objects. The resulting patterns and textures reinterpret the forms and re-contextualize them within a discourse of concealment and preservation. "Painting them this way, in what has evolved to become this absurd signature style of dipping, reasserts my individuality on them for a moment before being reborn as everyone's again. It's just a way of saying 'I am here'" Bradford's paint-dunked works are commentaries on the use of these objects, their meanings, and the role they play in everyday life. ■ Choi&Lager gallery Cologne
