Reiterate the Repeat: Keun Young Park and Sky Kim

Catalogue designed by Clint Sleeper

Thursday, September 22, 5:30pm: exhibition closing lecture by Keun Young Park in Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center, Wells Fargo Auditorium, room 124. The closing reception will be in Sheppard Gallery, Church Fine Arts, 6:30 - 8pm.

Both living in Jersey City, New Jersey but previously unknown to each other, Sky Kim and Keun Young Park create their artwork through very time-consuming and repetitive manners. This exhibition considers images created from this approach to artmaking. Park constructs “micro-collages” made from tiny pieces of torn up photographs punctured by a pin, while Kim creates large-scale scrolls by making thousands of marks, rendering voluptuous drawings in a variety of media.

Gallery Hours: Monday - Thursday, 11am - 5pm, Friday, 11am - 2pm
