Suki Seokyeong Kang (b. 1977, Seoul, South Korea) lives and works in Seoul. Kang uses various media including painting, installation, and video to seek a synesthetic expansion of painting methodology. She uses methods of painting to convey materiality, space, temporality and narrative as they form a visual (musical) score. Through movement and rhythm, Kang creates an environment that guides the direction for her painting. Her practice is situated between the abstract and figurative, the organic and geometric. She is interested in creating a visual language of balance and harmony, through which she seeks to portray the structure and order of various conditions that each individual faces in society.

Recent exhibitions include Gwangju Biennale, South Korea (2016); National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Gwacheon, South Korea (2016); Villa Vassilieff, Paris, France (2016); Visual Audio Pavilion, Seoul, South Korea (2015); and Old House, Seoul, South Korea (2013).
