EXHIBITION: Kyong Boon Oh, “Walk Slowly – Unknown Path”
Located in the Upstairs Gallery
May 20th – July 8th, 2023
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, May 20th at 6PM-9PM
Methodically and repetitiously, Oh weaves together threads of wire to create forms that are intertwined in complexity and order. Using various types of metal wire, Oh constructs abstract sculptures that are suspended from the ceiling. Oh creates each piece one step at a time, seeking order but expecting chaos and dissonance. Many threads of wire inevitably tangle with one another and dictate her next move. Oh says, “my art is like mapping a brand new pathway that is unknown to me. This path exists somewhere between chaos and order and is guided by my intuition.” She views a single thread of wire as a physical pathway for the mind and uses the repetitive action of weaving wire to symbolize the continuity of time.
