“Nearly every facet of life that we understand is dependent on our visual perception of the world, predisposing us to only see the “present.” But it is not difficult to perceive that our world is composed of two antithetical ideas: presence and absence, life and death. These ideas can be understood in the Buddhist philosophy of “Emptiness”—every existence, every single moment that has ever existed, can only conceived as between the past and the future. The abstract nature of this concept is often difficult to grasp, but my work is an attempt to secularize this fundamental idea.” – Sun Young Kang artist statement excerpt

“I draw and paint on a tiny scale and am inspired in particular by Early Netherlandish and Indian Miniature paintings. I use a variety of media as point of departure, ranging from personal photography to elements of film. Loosely narrative, my pieces reveal quiet, solitary moments when a sense of time or place is trapped and brought to stand still. The viewer of my work perceives something strange and unsettling but also sweet and familiar. In this way these paintings and drawings pay homage to classic tales of lore.” – Anne Canfield artist statement
