Craft presents the work of Sydney-based object maker Kenny Yong-soo Son in a solo presentation, Unobstructive Beauty.

Unobstructive Beauty is a showcase of utilitarian objects that explore the ideas of transmitting a type of beauty that is subtle, soft but long-lasting. A type of beauty that adds to the idea of harmony amongst the surrounding space, objects, and humans. A type of beauty that encompasses the right amount of balance in simplicity and complexity, producing notions of tranquil longevity.

Kenny Yong-soo Son is an object maker based in Sydney, Australia.

With background in metal craft and object design, the focus behind Son's practice is to create work that resemblance a sense of longevity and hand-craftsmanship. The design aesthetics of Son's work relate to the idea of reduction and simplicity with emphasis on modern and traditional craftsmanship in the physical work process.

Son is interested in producing work that has the ability to interact with the user and its surroundings, allowing a trigger of emotions and senses of the user when using the object.

Son has exhibited across Australia at Modern Times, Craft Victoria and in Korea at Gallery Ahwon, Seoul
