This event has ended.

What is the meaning of cultural icons in a world saturated with images and information? Amidst fields of exuberant abstraction, Jiha Moon shares bits of culturally specific popular imagery. Often executed with unconventional materials, including collages of embroidery, silk, and mylar, or traditional handmade Mulberry paper, her investigation of line in both large- and small-scale paintings, drawings, and prints is fluid and complex. She consistently uses methods of handwork as well as imagery adopted from women’s crafts and folk imagery from the United States and Korea. In her work, popular symbols deliberately and playfully question western and eastern culture’s relation to nature, landscape, and advertising imagery, as well as commonly held belief systems of blessings and fortunes.
