Kyung Jeon "a story"

Tina Kim Gallery

poster for Kyung Jeon "a story"

This event has ended.

For her first solo exhibition with the gallery, Kyung Jeon has created an ambitious cycle of 13 large-scale works that trace the story of a boy and a girl as they descend together into a symbolic world of dark forces and mythic transformation.

Painted on the traditional support of Korean rice paper and then mounted on canvas, each individual work represents a chapter in the character's journey. Similar to a hand scroll or a children's picture book, the works can be understood fluidly, both individually and as an opus. Playing with their dual character and in concert with the gallery exhibition, Jeon has designed a full color catalog that includes an accompanying text. This book can be seen as both a guide to interpreting the canvases and an independent work
