About the event
5:30 PM (Artist Talk); 6-8 PM (Exhibition Opening)
Join artist Jiha Moon for a walk-through of her current exhibition at the James Gallery followed by a reception. Of her working process, Moon writes, “As I move through life, living in different places and experiencing various cultures, I imagine places where opposite dreams coexist. I find places that are both peaceful and dangerous, fast and slow, full of old and new.” In large- and small-scale paintings, drawings, and prints, Moon shares bits of culturally specific popular imagery amidst fields of exuberant abstraction. Often executed with unconventional materials, including collages of embroidery, silk, and mylar, or traditional handmade Mulberry paper, her investigation of line is fluid, complex, and layered with meaning.
