Event Description

Sang Sik Hongs' work is all made by hand; a contrast to the technology we live in today. The beauty and craft that embodies Hong's work is accentuated by the softness in the color pallettes behind the straws themselves. The hard plastic is softened by the image he creates. The form of the body which is rounded and delicate is portrayed perfectly by his craft. His emotions and personal desires go into making each piece. His sculptures go beyond the limit of the materials; the images of lips may be interpreted as symbols of desire. Connecting such symbolized images and symbolic meanings (power and sex) reveals clearly that his interest is focused on human desires.
“Although every one desires power, only a few of people can have it. Power is the symbol of strength and the object for one’s wish since it accompanies many interests. Power is strong, scarce and heading toward eternity. However, the straw, contrary to the properties of power, is a weak structure, easily available to anyone for it is produced on a large scale and a disposable material.” His wit symbolizes semantic relationships and the structure of desires connotes the pathos of reality.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it. Questions to Ask a Guy
