Joomi Chung, (In)Visible
October 18–November 05, 2022
Reception: Tuesday, October 18th, 5-7 pm
Strata Gallery presents a solo exhibition, (In)Visible by Ohio-based artist Joomi Chung. The exhibition opens October 18 with an artist reception from 5-7 pm.
(In)Visible explores subjective experiences of time; simultaneous looking into and through another body; and the intersection between aural and visual experiences. The exhibition includes two experimental animations and a series of small-scale paintings. Transit (7:45) focuses on an experience of moving through time-space as a driver. Inside a Waterdog’s Head (6:54) portrays the world seen and felt by the artist’s dog, recently diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. While the two time-based works evoke a sensation of passing through a flux of time, the gouache painting series, Still Frames, offers a moment to contemplate the spaces contained in fractions of seconds.
Joomi Chung is a Korean-American artist based in Oxford, Ohio where she is currently an Associate Professor of Art at Miami University. Her work has been exhibited at national and international venues including Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts, Cincinnati, OH; Urban Arts Space, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH; Urban Institute of Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids, MI; Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO; Seoul Art Center at Hangaram Museum and SOMA Drawing Center, Seoul, South Korea; and the University of West Bohemia, Pilsen, Czech Republic among others. Joomi Chung is excited to show her new body of work at Strata Gallery in Santa Fe, NM.
Strata Gallery is open from 10 am to 5 pm Tuesday–Saturday. For more information about Strata Gallery, the current exhibit, and the future schedule of events, please visit the Strata Gallery website and Instagram.
