A finely drawn line separates Imi Hwangbo’s sensual sculptures of the 1990s from the discretely dimensional objects that she makes today. The swollen forms of “The Waiting Chamber” series have given way to exquisite introspection. Before, she carved and modeled organic shapes in plaster, then cast them into red rubber vessels. Now she turns her drawings into vellum maquettes and achieves sculptural geometric designs from multiple layers of digitally printed, hand-cut Mylar.

Clothes are the place at which the vanity of humans who seek to distinguish oneself from others remain as well as where the desire of affirming one's own unique value intervenes.
Jong Suk Yoon’s dialogue with clothes is his way of expressing the problems of our society.
- shapes associated with them, the colors and patterns printed on them, the things he sees by listening to them, drawing out another existence hidden inside.
In a sculpting like manner he reproduces his forms with meticulous dots - using a syringe (a simple unit of minimal expression), like counting each strand of fabric, he 'weaves' the clothes with painted dots - playing between dot and shape. The clothes that were considered dead reincarnate upon being granted with new life.
The protruding dots create and show tactile embossed sculpture as they spread throughout the screen like a rash. It arouses the allurement of wanting to feel with hands. At the same time, these dots turn the image into abstract form.
A beast symbolizes instinct and desire. The clothes with brilliant flower patterns transform into the head of dog, lion, pig or sheep. The 'beast-like' desire hidden in the clothes rears its head. It barks. The uniform of soccer players also takes in the form of handgun. It is like the image association of from offense, shooting and charge towards the goal. The clothes/images he painted/printed tend to be aimed and shot at us or bark at us. They form aggressively inflated and chilling suspense.

Always creating in a spontaneous manner, he is continually striving to find freedom within style, medium and form, and building upon the iconographic visual language he terms “Graphysics”, a word that exemplifies the geometric dynamism characteristic in his work.

Mi Ju, a young, very gifted painter from South Korea, symbolism is imbedded in mythological dream and fantasy as a means to interpret her upbringing in - and emigration from – a divided country. She connects her past and her present via a blend of traditional Korean motif and myth, along with current political and personal subject matter.
Born in South Korea, her father ran a textile factory and mother was a florist for a Buddhist temple. Massive rolls of fabric were always around her during her childhood, their colorful patterns and diverse textures affecting her visual expression. The intricate natural ornaments and bizarre creatures filling Buddhist temples also fed the artist’s imagination. She writes,

I perceive nature as flat, crowded, and infinite. Often times, the world is too large to comprehend, too crowded to find a focus. Countless living organisms are packed layer by layer, interconnected with each other. My compositions develop from the contemplation of opposing concepts: ephemeral and eternal, uncensored and restrained, improvised and strategic. The work often combines both cuteness and violence. By understanding natural elements from micro to macro, fractals to flocks, and ants to people, I reflect mixed perceptions of nature through my work. Nature could be seen as controllable, appealing, and delightful, yet from a different perspective, natural elements can become overwhelming and destructive.
Born in South Korea, Mi received her BFA in painting and drawing at Yeungnam University and the San Francisco Art Institute. Later Mi went on to earn her MFA in painting and drawing at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She has shown in group and solo exhibitions in Seoul, San Francisco, San Diego, Copenhagen and New York. Her work was recently acquired by the Fredrick R. Weisman Foundation of Los Angeles. Mi currently lives and works in Brooklyn.

Studying in Australia, San Francisco, and New York has given me insight into the various perspectives people have about nature. Native American totem poles, Aboriginal topographical art, and the complexity of psychedelic art all influence my artistic process. I look to scientific theories on the origin of life, emergence patterns, and swarm behavior to introduce more intricacy and narrative into my work.
