Autumn River, acrylic on canvas, 24h x 30w
Sang H. Han is a Korean-born contemporary landscape painter with a flair for highly detailed panoramic scenes of nature both bursting in life and poetic in silent isolation. The tragic loss of his father at an early age induced Sang to seek productive escape and solace in the arts. After years of unwavering determination and disciplined self-study, he eventually found comfort in mastering the technical precision of traditional painting techniques most used in Luminism and Impressionism. In each majestic, usually deserted landscape, harmonious effects of play in light, color and shadows blend with layers created by brushes and textured with paint knives.
A devout Christian, the spirituality of his landscapes is visually inherent – each seascape, cityscape, creekside, forest vista and seasonal change is glorified in a divine, sublime, organic reality. Sang’s works are consistently and successfully sold into various private collections through multiple gallery consignments including Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut, and from 1998-2012 three galleries which he and his family owned and also through a variety of online platforms. Sang has previously lived in the cities of Seoul, New York, and Dallas, and currently paints from his family home studio in New Jersey.
