Dragonfly Seasons is an art and culture exchange featuring visiting Korean artist Chang Han Kim.


Chang Han Kim has been invited to exhibit a selection of acrylics, oils and watercolours from his Dragonfly Seasons series. Kim is a distinguished artist who lives in Ulsan, South Korea, and is currently exhibiting there as well as in Osaka and Los Angeles.


The dragonfly in flight is a natural image which the artist has been working with since 1990. Kim is interested in the dragonfly as a symbol combining the refined power and activity of modern civilization with the raw, vivid life of nature.

The unfettered flight of the dragonfly echoes human mental and physical freedom as well as the whimsical world of the child. In short, Kim's dragonflies evoke a return to nature and an expression of the desire for living naturally.

Space, in Kim's dragonfly series, is boundless. This represents unlimited human imagination and the mysteries of mental and spiritual space.


Another major motif in Kim's work is floral. In this exhibition, he will juxtapose the ume flower and the rose, exploring oriental and western dissonance and harmony as exemplified by these two kinds of flower.

The ume flower has always figured prominently in the most famous Korean traditional paintings. It is one of the four "gracious plants" (along with the orchid, chrysanthemum, and bamboo). These represent the noble character of the true gentleman.

Contrasting the deep symbolic and cultural significance of the ume flower, the rose is relatively new to Korea, having been imported from the west. Like the ume, however, it seems to represent more lofty and pure human qualities. These two different flowers are similar not only in their natural beauty but also in that they inspire beauty of mind and spirit.

Together, these two flowers illustrate a harmony among oriental and western foci. Thematically, they generate a symbiosis of two cultures, providing a medium for exchange among Korean and Australian art and culture.
