Bright flora bursts in Kent Williams’s paintings (featured in HF Vol. 21). Thick brushstrokes of hot pink, mint and navy hint at an arrangement of organic growths. Williams frequently positions his subjects in the outdoors, where they inhabit areas that seem wild and overgrown yet feel contained like miniature Edens. His characters fervently move as if enacting a frenetic dance performance, their motion captured by his expressive use of paint. While Williams has been widely recognized for his figurative work over the past 20 years, his first solo show with 101/Exhibit in Los Angeles, “How Human of You,” marks a shift into abstraction. Figures are still present in many of the works, but Williams removes the idea of time and place, instead suspending them in an imaginary space where his flamboyant color choices elicit a visceral, emotional response.

It seems to me more and more archaic and out-of-place every day the fact of putting on make up.

In The Dense Mist…
The course of time is very much like the course of a ship in the ocean that leaves behind it a wake. The wake fades out and that tells us where the ship has been, in just the same way as the past and the memory of the past tells us what we have done and what happened to us. But just as the same way as the eventual wake of the ship fades away, so does the record of past.
One thing that is important to remember when looking at this illustration is that the wake doesn’t drive the ship. If you insist on being moved and determined by the past, that’s your game, but the fact of the matter is that it all starts now.
We establish a connectivity with the past because it gives the impression to other people that we are sane. Explaining things by the past is really a refusal to explain them at all. What does explain things is the present. There is no need to define yourself as the result of what has gone before, instead define yourself by what you are doing now.
“…In the dense mist, what is being shouted between hill and boat?”

Seung-Hwan Oh | On Tumblr

Seung-Hwan Oh works and lives in Seoul, where he was born and raised until moving to New York where he studied film and photography at CUNY Hunter College. His work and practice stem from his interest and approach toward other disciplinary thoughts and ideas, from philosophy to sciences. His most recent work, exhibited at Zaha Museum, was inspired by the notion of the first advent of vision in life on earth, and his current work focuses on implementing microbial growth on film as a means to explore the impermanence of matter as well as the material limitations of photography.
