Da Young Kang is a South Korean-based painter and installation artist who often uses soft materials to create geometric and three-dimensional work. Her art developed from monochromatism and minimalism—inspired by the shapes and colors of Korean wrapping cloths. In her works, there is a great representation of production that consists of illusionistic repetition. In addition, the primary mode of expression is the use of hand-sewing, whereby, long and short strokes come together to create pictorial composition. As such, her practice involves a combination of sewing and embroidery on canvas to create repetition, depth, and simplicity. Each work makes use of the features in their modes of creation leading to the creation of a never-ending system of sewing and illusion.
Kang's work has been exhibited in the Master of Art International, Chelsea Gallery, London in 2015 and rewarded for Best Abstract.
