Concerned with investigating the relationship between time and space through painting, Changha Hwang manipulates his canvases with color and line to create dense patterns in acrylic paint. His intricately woven grids enhance the notion of time inherent in patterns. Like the Jewish paper cuts, Islamic tile patterns, and stained glass works which inspire him, Changha's process, forms, and ornaments illustrate a temporal story; an abstraction of the linear nature of time.
Born in 1969, Korean-artist Changha Hwang studied Painting at Parsons School of Design and completed his undergraduate degree in 1998. He continued his education at the Frank Mohr Institute in the Netherlands and received his Masters in Fine Art from Hunter College, New York in 2002. He has had solo exhibitions at Galeria Marta Cervera (Madrid), Galerie Anne de Villepoix (Paris), and Massimo Audiello (New York). Changha has participated in multiple group shows around the world and he has been represented at art fairs such as PULSE (Miami), FIAC (Paris), Frieze Art Fair (London), Art Brussels, and The Armory Show.
