Around Us: New Paintings by Jeong Im Yi
ArtZone 461 Gallery is pleased to announce two new concurrent solo shows for Jeong Im Yi and Eileen Starr Moderbacher. These are only the second solo shows with each of these artists at ArtZone 461 Gallery, now approaching its fifth anniversary.
Jeong Im Yi’s new paintings parallel her recent and new travel and life experiences. They are more colorful and include the introduction of landscape painting. The consistent element in her body of work remains her faithfulness to demonstrating technical skills and capturing, not merely documenting, moments at - or of - the intersection of time and memory.
The artist comments on her increased concern with the picture plane: “The brush marks on my paintings record points of mindfulness, and points of contact; they record my presence.” She projects viewers will experience firsthand these points of mindfulness that, in turn, refresh the works for a new audience.
Jeong Im Yi earned two Masters Degrees in Painting, one in 1995 from Hong Ik University in Seoul, South Korea and the second in 2004 from the San Francisco Art Institute. She has exhibited internationally in Seoul, Tokyo, Tel Aviv, Vienna, Paris, Chicago and San Francisco.
Opening Reception Saturday May 11, 5:00 - 8:00 pm
Gallery Hours: 12-6 pm Wednesday-Sunday, occasional evenings and anytime by appointment
