ACC Gallery presents "Liberation Notes" by Yung C Kang

(TENAFLY, NJ) -- ACC gallery presents "Liberation Notes" - the 1st solo show for Yung C Kang. The exhibit runs from December 9 to January 9, 2023.  There will be an opening reception on Friday, December 9th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. At the reception, he will have a book signing event for his first published book.

Dr. Kang, who has been helping the Korean language school of Cia-Cia, an Indonesian tribe, donates the proceeds from this exhibition and book signing.

ACC Gallery curator, Hobong Kim, said, "Dr. Kang has practiced dentistry for several decades in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. Before going to dental school, he double majored in Chemistry and Art in college. While working as a dentist, Dr. Kang has always had a passion for art. He reminds me of Dr. Gachet, Van Gogh's psychiatrist. As a spiritual supporter of Van Gogh and as a friend, he loved art and did art."

Hobong Kim continued, "It's been four years since he started painting again as a challenge and a commitment to himself. He is not wooing recognition from the audience. He wishes to be himself, free from imposed boundaries and established practices. Rather than attempting to reproduce perfect circles, he desires to find joy in drawing curved lines of a bulbous, misshapen potato with pieces of evidence of actual life in full display. He yearns to bring forth what he sees and feels inside himself. 

"The true beauty of abstract art derives from personal expressions of memories and experiences that shape the artist's life. It may be best to leave critics and viewers to formulate their interpretations, unaffected by unnecessary input or explanation, as it allows him to continue to pursue meaningful growth as an artist. I hope he strives for true liberation by continually developing his colors, shapes, and patterns."

"His liberation has ultimately been a way to find art and himself. He stated, 'I realized that the greatest freedom becomes possible when I am true to myself. I was lost, wandering in my own life while constantly surrounded by the consciousness of others. I have only recently begun living my life while taking steps to liberate myself, free of distractions from other people.' I genuinely admire his liberation along with his art journey," said the curator.
