bowl, home, energy, culture, corner, table, earth, space, embrace, everything: In Kyoung Chun at {Poem88}

February 16 - March 30, 2013

opening reception: Saturday, February 16, 2013, 7-9:30 pm
artist talk: Sat, March 9, 2 pm

In her first solo exhibition, Chun considers materiality and its dissolution and their connection within the never-ending continuum of energy. Beginning with an installation of disparate objects and surfaces, Chun creates large and small paintings in watercolor and oil that move between representation and abstraction. Bubbles and open spaces occur and reoccur as a device for portraying that push and pull, embracing the visible and the invisible, the mundane and the sublime. Dollhouses and clocks intermingle with rooftops and rice cakes to indicate the exchange between American and Korean cultural signs. Chunís adept use of color is especially pleasing.

Chun is an MFA graduate of the Georgia State University Welch School of Art and is currently a Walthall Fellow. She is also the 2013-2014 recipient of the Emerging Artist Award from the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs.
