“This exhibition is inspired by colors, and shapes which could be found in underwater life. So is the significance of the exhibit title refers to hidden, and very fragile treasures of mother nature. It is my first solo show with Regina gallery in Korea, though we’ve worked together for three years before this, however, due to the pandemic, naturally, our plans were postponed until this moment. This show encompasses entirely new work, and are paintings assembled from multiple canvases to create organic compositions; mostly, relief canvases, and one suspended installation,” says Jan about the show.

Regina gallery echoes Jan and says, “as the exhibition title suggests, Kaláb’s abstract paintings contain dreamy and otherworldly elements. Like encountering coral reefs in the open sea – his works offer a new excitement and guides viewers to a new world. The exhibition invites visitors to a mesmerizing and emotionally-moving celebration of color.” “Beyond the Atolls” runs until June 10, 2023 at Regina Gallery, located at 10 Teheran-ro 25gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea.
