Viewing Lab

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.

Following her exhibition “Relationship” last December, 2019 in our Seoul gallery space, Na welcomes viewers to continue their experience with this online presentation of two works.

Included online are two works from her earlier series during 2008 and 2009. Through these series, she offers a unique view on the development of her silk layering process.

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. We sat down with JungJo Na to extract her notion on the significance of layering.

"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. "

The airy clouds suggest a pattern of seasonal change through their overlay of the trees. She warms the viewer with her choice of colors and her ability to lightly intertwine nature’s elements.

The translucent overlay of shapes depicts the artists’ intention to take the viewer into a floating state of reality. The outlined shapes harmonize with the solid circles as they combine beautifully into one.

Shinduk Kang: Jupiter

SHINDUK KANG

Jupiter
Janurary, 2020
Viewing Lab

Kang’s warm, playful style is defined by contrasting colors and free-flowing forms. This reflects the artist’s desire to emphasize life’s small, yet essential, pleasures. Lenticular lens printing adds luminous depth to the flowers in Shinduk Kang’s works. 

Kang’s beautifully arranged flowers extend up and outward,filling the frame with rich colorful petals. Her extensive use of lines in this lenticular produce a deep, forest driven, environment. Her shapes are rounder, wider, and more clustered with greater detail.

Kang received her BFA and MFA in sculpture from HongIk University. In 1988, she did terracotta studio practice at White Place Studio, Boston, USA. Currently she works and lives in Seoul showing her work internationally. 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.

Shinduk will show her new “Jupiter” series at Art on Paper during Armory Arts Week in New York City.
