This event has ended.

Amos Eno Gallery presents City Creatures, featuring a new installation by Sunyoung Seo. Ms Seo was born and raised in an urban environment and grappled with the stressful feelings of city life, which brought out in her a range of emotions from smugness to despair. Seo believes that city people are ironically eager to get away from city life and get relief from the anxiety that it creates, while at the same time retaining the driving ambition that is part of a fast paced city climate. The installation City Creatures is an examination of the contradictions that exist in this modern progressive age. Seo approaches this topic in a playful way by using imagery that resembles toys, such as stuffing and bright colors, which speak in a universal way to both children and adults.

Sunyoung Seo received her MFA from C.W. Post in Long Island, N.Y. in 2009. She also attended the Fashion Institute of Technology, State University of New York, and studied toy design in 2010. Previously, she earned her BFA in Korea in 2003, and has exhibited extensively in the United States and Korea.
