Ju Yun: Celestial Carnival
Tuesday, Nov. 07 at 10 a.m.
Gallery hrs: Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 6pm
November 7– January 6, 2023
Celestial Carnival features Korean-American artist Ju Yun's vibrant and often otherworldly paintings which take their inspiration from mass culture in all its forms. Her paintings intertwine elements of pure abstraction and recognizable motifs drawn from traditional Korean art and global pop culture, and often incorporate non-traditional materials, cut-up and collaged arrangements, found objects, and ready-made consumer items.
Through her voracious formal vocabulary and playful sense of humor, Ju Yun’s paintings present a concentrated and kaleidoscopic vision that celebrates hybrid identities and cross-cultural connections. Their exuberant surfaces are evocative and philosophically informed explorations of liminal terrain full of chimerical creatures, uncanny patterns and disembodied eyes. In these myth-like tableaux, time and space collapse upon each other and the known world is reformed as a new world is awakened.
