Su-Jeong NAM, Exploring the Harmony in Nature Through Line
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Su-Jeong NAM in The New Flux. The exhibition opens October 20, 2017 and runs through November 9, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, October 26 from 6-8 pm.
The work of South Korean artist Su-Jeong NAM is an exploration of numerous detailed and delicate lines, drawn layer by layer until they form grasses or leaves. She isn't simply drawing landscapes, however, but using lines to describe the essential harmony she sees in nature and the universe. Starting with dry pigments, the artist first colors her paper, then begins drawing. Gradually, the forms of flower petals, stamens, pistils and leaf veins emerge.
From a young age, Su-Jeong NAM's weak eyesight forced her to train herself to view objects in a different way. Now, instead of looking at a flower and seeing a flower, she sees the lines that make up the flower — not just the outline or the lines that might be visible on the surface, but lines down to the cellular level. It’s this description of the innumerable lines that make up our world, and yet which most people can't see, that makes this work unique. The artist, who received her BFA from the Busan National University in South Korea, says she hopes her paintings give people a feeling of optimism through her canvases' bright, fresh color and form.

About the Exhibition
The New Flux presents a cross-section of different pictorial practices gathered around the theme of nature in urban life. Taking what is specific to a natural setting—a landscape, a body of water—and showing how it impacts the flow or urban life, The New Flux makes a case that our dependency on nature is just as pervasive as our dependency on technology.
