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. The method convincingly evokes atmospheric, sweeping views that envelope the viewer in tranquil emotion. His primary medium of oil painting on canvas retains the classical feel and longevity tributary to works of the Old Masters.
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. Be it monochromatic and melancholy, or vividly bright and uplifting, Sang’s reverence to the outer world and its constant state of flux reflects on his intrinsic inner world – filled with energy yet thorough in contemplative dualities, deep strength, calmness and steadiness of character.
Having previously lived in the cities of Seoul, New York, and Dallas, Sang’s paintings over the past 30 years have inspired and transported viewers into these idyllic natural spaces often forgotten in the noise of urban life. His works are consistently and successfully sold into various private collections through multiple gallery consignments including from 1998-2012 three galleries which he and his family owned and a through a variety of online platforms. He currently paints from his family home studio in New Jersey
