poster for Gahae Park Exhibition

This event has ended.

Gahae Park uses simplifies patterns in meticulously cut relief drawings as a representation of the creative process underlying visual art, music and human life itself. She chooses to accept life’s rhythms as the force and material for creation. Park fuses the raw material of music into visual, emotional and intellectual forms by drawing with cut paper, shaping and layering positive and negative space into rhythmic patterns.The cut openings are composed with a focus on creating lines that specify coherent patterns of light and shadows of grid, forming a visual musical structure. The paper itself becomes the instrument that reacts to light and thereby creating visual musical patterns. At this show, she will present a site-specific installation, Music Drawings: The Goldberg Variations by Bach- the interpretation combined a sense of time and metaphysical space with sound diagram suggesting a melody in her unique patterns.

She has exhibited at the Queens Museum of Art, NY; the Seoul national Museum of art, Seoul; Artists’ international Museum in Poland and many national and international venues. She has been reviewed in Art in America, Sculpture, Brooklyn Rail and Chelsea Now. She received Grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Edward F.
