In Kyoung Chun: You Are Here At {Poem 88} says
In Kyoung Chun's second solo exhibition at Poem 88, You are Here, offers delights at every turn. Her paintings further her continued interest in the depiction of ki energy through the use of bubble forms interacting with,
and sometimes obscuring, landscapes and domestic scenes. The bubbles become proxies for "you" and "I" -- inextricably bound together and offering parallel narratives of yin and yang, male and female, parent and child. In watercolors and oils on canvas, Chun revisits earlier works and imagines them afresh, distilled into greater and greater abstraction. Dollhouses and urban landscapes of rooftops melt into pastel, amorphous puzzles.

Newly realized translucent houses push this inquiry into the third dimension. Made of plexiglass with light components, these new sculptures announce a new, more crystalline manifestation.

In Kyoung Chun was born in Seoul, Korea and resides in Atlanta, Georgia. An MFA graduate from GSU, Chun received the Emerging Artist Award from the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs in 2012-13 and was also a Walthall Fellow through WonderRoot Center. She has also been a Fellow at the Hambidge Arts Center.

Our next exhibition, Brambles, Roads and Fields, will feature the work of Micah Cash, Mark Leibert (courtesy of Sandler Hudson Gallery) and Hannah Tarr and will open on Saturday, July 11 and run through the end of August.
