The precise, delicate mezzotints of artist KB Hwang are truly incredible to see in person. His prints are made with painstaking attention to detail. Every flower, grain of wood, and striation is perfectly placed and defined. The artist uses soft lighting and colors both to depict familiar objects in surreal settings. His prints convey a sense of serenity in their softness.
