The Way to be EmptySun Young Kang


ABC11 sunyoung_kang_empty_2


Abecedarian Gallery has had the honor of exhibiting both The Way to Be Empty 1 & The Way to Be Empty 2 at various times. Both are works that demand repeated and leisurely reading. A recent gallery visitor was telling me about her experience meeting Sun Young in Philadelphia, where she was awarded purchase awards from both the Jaffe Center for Book Arts and Wellesley College and the Philadelphia Center for the Book Regional Award. My visitor described what can only be likened to an ethereal glow that emanated from Ms. Kang. That glow is also very present in both of the Way to Be Empty pieces.

Sun Young Kang is an artist working on books or installation art. She is a native of Korea and now 
residing in Philadelphia. She holds a BFA in Korean Painting from Ewha Woman’s University and MFA BookArts/Printmaking at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
