About

David Jang strives to transform the detritus of urban life into minimalist paintings of formal elegance, both gritty and sublime. He hopes to inspire others to discover art as a necessity to the human condition, not a luxury. David Jang’s work utilizes materials and object-making to articulate the countervailing forces inherent in the everyday; expansion and contraction, perfection and imperfection, force and balance, have and have not.

This large 60 inch square neutral colored mixed media artwork is stretched, wired and ready to hang. Jang created this original artwork using melted foam cups on canvas. The sides of the artwork are white, and it does not require framing. A certificate of authenticity issued by Artspace Warehouse and hanging hardware are included. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable global shipping is available.

David Jang was born in Seoul, Korea in 1975 and received his BFA from the College of Visual Arts, St. Paul, Minnesota, where he studied sculpture and painting. He lives in Los Angeles and is represented by Artspace Warehouse, Los Angeles. His artworks have been exhibited and collected worldwide.
Jang’s process can be described as an exacting, fanciful, even obsessive re-appropriation of common materials—one in which he deconstructs, reprograms and reconstitutes industrial and commercial cast-offs to reveal new relationships between the object and the viewer. Most people know the media he uses in their ubiquitous forms—as a potato chip bag, a remote control, plastic jar, Styrofoam cup, coiled wire, light bulbs, et cetera—but coded also into each of these objects (and the materials from which they are composed) are its life’s instructions.

David Jang describes his process: “As I examine the continuum of the objects, I begin to discover the hidden subtexts and hierarchies these objects uphold—the social orders they sustain or subvert and the relationships they facilitate or fail. I attempt to foster a self-revelatory creative process, one that is empirical yet open-ended. In this way my work results, not in forced conversation, but in quasi-scientific discovery.”
