Examining Shinduk Kang’s ‘Open Air’ stainless steel sculpture series is an adventure into her imagination. The title of the series lends itself to the idea that there is no definite reference to what these sculptures are, but rather what they could be. I immediately think of a vast field, with flowers, fruits, vegetables, similar to farmland. We can imagine that there are pumpkins, squash, giant flower bulbs, lining the field. Their red, blue, and silver colors are unusual to find in such an environment, which makes her sculptures all the more intriguing with their blend of nature and fabrication.
