As long as humans have made art, we have made pictures of animals, often with a profound spiritual or allegorical intention. We love to assign human psyches to their expressions and personalities (and vice versa) and to imagine almost telepathic connections with them. In this tradition, Toronto-based artist Kisung Koh posits that we are not imagining it at all. In his experience, communion with the world's multiverse of fauna has been very real, and its lessons have proven true. The new paintings in his exhibition "Way of Life II" combine a classical technique for fine rendering of landscapes and the fox, bear, antlered and feline denizens thereof with a surrealist impulse for symbolism and metaphor, a dark wit, and a deep appreciation for sublime beauty.
