Sodam Kim: New Works

SODAM KIM

New Works

FEBRUARY 1 -FEBRUARY 10, 2020

Korean artist Sodam Kim’s new series takes a powerful approach to exploring regret, fear, and anxiety through both on paper and canvas. This is Sodam’s debut exhibition with the gallery.  

She continues with her enlarged images centered on the frame, full of life, detail, and includes a range of colors. She takes a complex look into the inside of female emotions while simultaneously using gentle forms.

After receiving her BFA in Seoul, she moved to Frankfurt, Germany and began her artistic career. Kim is exhibiting her work internationally; in France, Germany, and Korea. She currently lives and works in Seoul.

Shinduk Kang: Lovely

SHINDUK KANG

Lovely

December 12-December 31, 2019

Seoul

We have curated our favorites from Shinduk’s Still Life 2019 series for this December, 2019. 

Lenticular lens adds luminous depth to the still life objects in Shinduk’s work. New colors and forms are simultaneously revealed and hidden as the viewer moves back and forth in front of the prints, like light moving across an ordinary vase of flowers throughout the span of a day. Light, in its subtle transformations of shades and color, is the true subject of the Still Life series. 

Shinduk Kang studied sculpture at HongIk University in Seoul, in 1988 she had her ceramic art residency at White Place Studio, Boston USA. She currently works and lives in Seoul. 

Kang’s “Still Life Lenticular” and “Growing Stone Sculpture” series are in the Art Bank collection of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea.

Jungjo Na: Relationship

JUNGJO NA

Relationship

Opening: December 3, 2019 5-8 PM

December 3 – December 11, 2019

Seoul

JungJo Na’s body of work appears soft, yet enriched in color. Her interest lies within the depth and vitality of the space near the surface. This is her 4th solo presentation with us, her continuous investigation on visible and invisible, overlapping space. 

To achieve this depth, she overlaps translucent silk and paints onto it, providing continuity between the two elements. She creates a three-dimensional effect using canvas, with silk as an overlay.

Her first presentation with us began with Virtual Pathway (2007), later showing Deep Inside (2016), and Floating Bubble: Snow (2017).

Jungjo Na studied Oriental Painting in Seoul, then moved to New York City and received her MFA in Digital Arts from Pratt. She currently lives and works in Seoul.

"I paint on the canvas and then work on another layer of paint on silk on top of it.
And this gap between the two creates the light. "

JinLee Park: Healing Landscape

JinLee Park

Healing Landscape

October 25 - October 31, 2019
Seoul

Park’s work is simple in subject matter and minimal in her execution. She takes cues from nature motifs: leaves, flowers, and trees. She carefully uses white space to add a touch of solemnity to her work, and provides meaning behind these still life objects.


 “When I make strokes with my brush and apply stone powder on the canvas, I feel that I sprinkle the lawn and sweep out the yard. This is my own way to open a new universe, which purifies my tired mind.”


JinLee’s solo presentation is part of our local artist outreach program. JinLee works and lives in Incheon, Korea.

Sun Choe: Pray

SUN CHOE

Pray

September 2 - September 10, 2019
Seoul

“All of a sudden,” the artist writes, “I realized that we all were like bowls. Whatever the shape, we are all precious and deserve to be filled in.” – Sun Choe

Sun Choe uses a strictly minimalist color palette to concentrate upon the form and essence of a single object, such as a bowl, house, and candle. By repeatedly painting these forms in sketch-like strokes, Choe obtains a transcendent state of religious discovery. 

At first glance, Sun Choe’s painting Pray (2014) appears to hold up to the serene and contemplative image suggested by its title. Yet a closer glance reveals a clutter of broad brushstrokes, a rough-hewn canvas, and hazy boundaries between the outline of the depicted bowl and its background. The painting is analogous to the act of prayer itself, where a calm exterior belies the storms of thought and concentration swirling beneath.

Point of Time (2018) follows a lineage of artists inspired by the Korean moon jar’s uniquely rotund shape. Criss-crossing lines slash through the painting, imbuing the jar with an uneasy energy and creating a compelling tension between negative and positive space on the canvas.

BoYeon Kim: Expanded Mind

BoYeon Kim

Expanded Mind

August 20 - August 31, 2019 Seoul

BoYeon Kim reconstructs multilayered perspectives by way of multiple cubes. The concept of memory is altered by her ideas of that specific time as she imagines potential possibilities. This is BoYeon’s 2nd solo presentation with the gallery from Time of Daily Life(2016).


In her Cube series, BoYoen explores how to transfigure memory through images of time and space. Each cube manifests the artists’ fragments of memory in different times. “I can imagine myself in this landscape, taken to another reality, that which could be Utopia”. 

Cube series is in the Art Bank collection at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea.

HeeYeon Kim: Time Play

HeeYeon Kim

Time Play

June 3 - June 12, 2019
Seoul

HeeYeon Kim’s body of work illustrates movement reminiscent of a simple line drawing, demonstrated with Time Play’s childlike lines and color. Her choice of imagery is often completed in neutral tones, and with repeated brushstrokes. This presentation is HeeYeon’s 2nd solo exhibition with the gallery extension from her Time Play(2016).

Her process for forming her backgrounds starts with a pour over mixture of stone and glass powder into acrylic. Before it gets dry she scrapes or erases it with a brush and repeatedly pours and dries it to spread the image out. She uses plantlike forms to execute her technical process, playing with texture and blank space. These motifs found in nature are transformed beyond landscape and still life.

She has shown her work in major cities such as Seoul, Japan, New York, Berlin, Cannes, and Paris.

Her color choices are bright, bold, and playful. The markings and imprints of flowers resemble a whimsical springtime atmosphere.
