Sukhyung, Kang focuses on 'painting' itself. His work is faithful to his instincts, and it does not rely on a conceptual understanding of aesthetics or other explanation. Using oil paints and spray paint, the artist fills the canvas with abstract forms whose lines emphasize spontaneity through the speed and rhythm of his brushstrokes. The act of painting remains visible in the final works. Rather than relying on meaning imbued in the individual elements of the work, the paintings rely on the holistic experience of the viewer and the inherent power of image to stimulate intuitive sensibilities and associations. The artist emphasizes the qualities inherent to the medium such as color, line and form.

The text we read and write it starts with the lines. And we see that images from the lines, we learn and communicate each other. Hand a crayon to an infant, still without a fully developed sense of self, and it will repeatedly draw lines. Likewise, the artist understands the lines in his works to be the purest and simplest. Through the line, the artist also uses painting that capable of performing arts. The line is easy to read, and it has expressive power that the audience can imagine how the artist painted it. The traces of scratched lines and scraped out that repeated acts in his paintings are showing his situation and position at the same time of contemporary art today.
