Dialogues Beyond Words: Powerful Emotional Abstract Art by Five Artists

“Dialogues Beyond Words” presents a curated collection of profound artworks by five distinctive artists: Toshiro Yamaguchi (b. 1956), Onishi Hiroshi (b. 1961-2011), Yiryang Oh (b. 1962), Shinduk Kang(b.1952) and Oan Kyu (b. 1953). This exhibition focuses on the non-verbal, contemplative interactions between the artworks and the viewers, emphasizing the silent yet powerful exchange of ideas and emotions. Each piece delves into abstract interpretations, the tactile nature of art, and the emotional or philosophical explorations communicated through colors, textures, and forms. Together, these works manifest “Dialogues Beyond Words,” as they communicate their essence through visual language alone—conveying emotions, thoughts, and narratives without uttering a single word. This exhibition invites you to immerse yourself in the silent conversations between the artworks and discover the powerful language of art that transcends spoken words.

Oan Kyu (b. 1953, lives and works in Italy)
“Earlier than Writing” by Oan Kyu features an intricate array of hand-drawn lines that undulate across a textured, cream-colored background. The lines form rhythmic, wave-like patterns, interrupted occasionally by blotches that resemble ink drops, suggesting an element of human involvement and the unpredictable nature of prehistoric markings. These variations add an organic touch, embodying the exhibition’s theme of silent, visual communication.

Yiryang Oh (b. 1962, lives and works in Korea)
“Existence Wave” by Yiryang Oh explores the philosophical essence of existence through wave-like textures on contrasting vibrant and muted panels. This artwork represents the continual flux of life’s energies, visualizing different states of being and offering a metaphor for the spectrum of human experiences, aligning seamlessly with the exhibition’s focus on non-verbal expressions.

Toshiro Yamaguchi (b. 1956, lives and works in Spain)
“Voice of Silence” by Toshiro Yamaguchi presents contrasting canvases— one dark with a textured, grid-like pattern and another off-white with a tactile surface showing signs of wear. This juxtaposition evokes a sense of history and the passage of time, reflecting the silent dialogue theme by conveying deep, meditative qualities through simple yet profound visual languages.

Hiroshi Onishi (b. 1961-2011)
“View of Remembrance” by Hiroshi Onishi captures an ethereal scene of delicate, intertwining branches in ghostly white and blue hues, creating a sense of depth and complexity. The artwork invites quiet introspection, perfectly encapsulating the serene and contemplative mood ideal for the exhibition’s theme of transcending spoken word through art.

Shinduk Kang (b. 1952, lives and works in Korea)
“Ocean” by Shinduk Kang is a stainless steel sculpture that abstracts the human form into fluid, reflective contours reminiscent of water. Its polished surface not only mirrors its surroundings but also encourages viewers to contemplate the interconnectedness of human and natural elements. This sculpture’s dynamic form and reflective quality offer an interactive experience, inviting silent yet profound exchanges between the art and its audience.
