Earthly Landscapes: Nostalgia and Prophecy
New York, NY- Space 776 is pleased to present a duo exhibition featuring works by Rimm Chae and Kwang Young Chun.
Rimm Chae's art attracts great attention for her elegant handling of lacquer and meticulous processes associated with jewelry design. With a career spanning over twenty years, Chae Rimm draws inspiration from both scenery and memory. She experiments with Eastern philosophies regarding humanity and natural cycles and explores the harmony of the two. Her new body of work, "Lacquered Landscapes," from the series Mountains and Islands, features a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, and jewelry.
Chun Kwang Young’s work showcases his formal training in Abstract Expressionism. He seamlessly references a continuum in which the organic past and cognitive present thrive contemporaneously. Inspired by his childhood memories of Korean medicine boxes, Chun Kwang Young creates mountainous forms that allude to natural processes of transformation. His geometric compositions are adorned with educational and philosophical texts that offer a prophetic, even post-apocalyptic interpretation of the coexistence of intellectual progress and human contamination.
Venue: SPACE 776
