This event has ended.

As early as the 1990s Jungwook Grace Rim used text which imbued her works with a conceptual aspect. She also began to examine varying points of view and positive negative space in her cylinder series drawings that contain a cylinder/glass that appears less than half full. Its oval shape drawn on the white paper appears as negative space that simultaneously because of its outline can be read as positive. The pictorial space around this form is dotted with circles and crosses that can be read literally as the symbols of love and kisses or according to eastern philosophy. In fact throughout her artistic career Rim utilizes these elements along with hearts, the oval, and lettering to convey her feelings as they pertain to the world around her. These symbols continue to be present in Rim’s oeuvre and represent her maturity as an artist but they also forecast her future direction.
