Bound in geometric space and spontaneous expulsion, the artistic evolution of Max Kong has found audience in Korea, Japan, Thailand and the United States. This July, Ode to Art is proud to present Max Kong, and his newest works of explorative abstraction titled, "Where Do I Begin".

Multifaceted and layered with not only physical, but conceptual complexities in stroke, “Where Do I Begin” is indeed an apt encapsulation of the adroit artist’s works. The upcoming solo exhibition will feature a total of 15 newest artworks of explorative abstraction by Max Kong.

Influenced by great abstract creatives, such as Robert Ryman, and the cultural integrations our globalized world has placed in front of in inhabitants, Max aims to extend the limitations of the material and aesthetic, incorporating essential artistic elements such as pattern and systematic spacing with unconventional mediums and form that mimic the ordinary in a displaced perspective.

Max is a strong believer of "How to paint" instead of "What to paint". Using a series of customized tools and painting media, he embarks on the creation of abstract imagery that is quickly and almost subconsciously executed. It is his fascination with his process that has led to him embarking on his ongoing exploration of "how to paint" using process-oriented tools. This unique style of painting leaves his artworks in an illusory state of inadequacy to invite the viewers to fill in more details through their imagination, to deconstruct and decode the artist's method. More than an art of painting or sculpting, Max creates an art of viewing and thinking.
