Korean born artist, Sang-ah Choi, will present her paintings in Sylvania’s North View Gallery this spring. She states:
Containing a possibility of visual movement, my paintings construct a complex pictorial space with diffused viewpoints and shifted perspectives. Under the mixed perspective orders, the pictorial space is built on the conversations between controlled and accidental mark-makings in the painting process. The pictorial space, which I call landscape, is not an illusionistic space, rather a reconstructed one for exploring the nuances of visual perception. Engaged with nonlinear arrangement of the space and time, I play on repetition, layers and perspectives through which the relationship among images shimmers their visual abstraction. In this abstraction, I explore how the visual cognitive experience can enhance the capacity of our perception on something we don’t understand.
Sang-ah Choi lives and works in Mountain View, California. She is originally from Seoul, Korea, and earned a B.F.A. and M.F.A. from Ewha Womans University (Seoul); and received an M.F.A. from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Her works have been featured in solo and group shows nationally and internationally, such as Doosan Gallery (NY), Sarubia Dabang (Seoul), Arario Gallery (NY), Sandra Gering Gallery (NY), Portland Art Museum (Portland, OR), Today Art Museum (Beijing), White Box (Portland, OR), Art Gym (Marylhurst, OR), and the Schneider Museum of Art (Ashland, OR). She received a Hallie Ford Fellowship in 2011.
