Min-Woo Bang Profile Image

MIN-WOO BANG

Min-Woo Bang’s surfaces, lustrously built up in oil and acrylic, are both dramatic and subtle in their effect. Sometimes an under-structure reveals itself behind a small crack or running drip; these deliberate flaws and uneven textures are reminders of the artist’s ongoing interests in the process of time, the fragility of memory and nature’s disintegration.

The physical elements and forces of nature are interdependent in these atmospheric landscapes and the experience of nature’s decay and transformation is balanced by a deep, physical and emotional connection to place.

Min-Woo Bang has been a finalist in numerous national art awards and prizes, including the Wynne Prize for Landscape painting (2011), the NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize (2012) and the King’s School Art Prize (2013). He is one of Sydney’s emerging new talents.
