Luke Mack & So Hee Kim Ponyride Artists In Residence Exhibition says
PLAYGROUND DETROIT is pleased to announce the chosen visual artists selected for the Fall 2016 Artist Residency program at Ponyride to bring together Detroit-based artist Luke Mack and visiting artist So Hee Kim.

As the upcoming fall season brings fresh colors to the city’s sprawling foliage, these talented emerging artists will similarly bring new vibrant gradients of color to Corktown with their forthcoming creations.

The selected artists are paired together thematically after careful review of applications from an open call to provide them both with private live/work space and co-working area, as well as a stipend with the generous support of Blick Materials.

The goal of their six weeks residency is to make new work that will be publicly exhibited at the end of the residency, establish curated personal connections and to encourage dialogue between the artist fellows that are reflective of their relationship to and their understanding of Detroit.

Since receiving her BFA in Painting at Rhode Island School of Design in 2015 So Hee Kim has become what she dubs as a “residency-hopper.” She has completed nine different residencies across the United States, Canada, and Germany, exhibiting in each city, as well as in Seoul, Korea since 2014. The experiences have led to the accumulation of interesting stories and dialogues, attributing to her site-specific installations that she plans to continue to develop in Detroit.

Luke Mack's work strives to create strong conceptual ideas and stories, disguised as beautiful images with bold compositions. He has taken influences from graffiti culture, Eastern thought, and a critical view of Western hedonism, while trying to achieve higher levels of realism and dynamic compositions. He works mainly in oils and believe that details are just as important as showing loose brush strokes, and the contrast between the two connects the viewer to the artist's process as well as the artist's intent for the concept.
