Kang Kang Hoon's art features large-scale portraits characterized by surprising detail and realism, employing vibrant and photo-realistic colors. The representation of cotton goes beyond technical hyperrealism, embracing a visceral and figurative sensibility. Notably, the cotton buds' outer edges tremble in the breeze, depicted with solidly layered matière, while parched leaves on the stem reveal understated detailing. Kang's reality now prioritizes emotional connection with the audience, reflected in bold brushstrokes and a measured approach to details, guided by his inner quiet and reality.
