“Between the Threads”: featuring On-Kyeong Seong
February 9 – May 30, 2017
On-Kyeong Seong, KCSB Arts Committee member, has a solo exhibition at the Korean Consulate General in Boston. Artist’s statement:
My works of arts consist of abstract forms of biomorphism with unconventional methods such as stitching with a sewing machine in the form of painted and sewn pieces, which build up relief surfaces on the canvas. Deploying such ‘unconventional methods’ expresses automatic drawing gestures related to abstract expressionism of the 60’s and the 70’s and also to avoiding overly determined painting marks. I keep challenging myself with experiments in different art media instead of sticking to traditional oil painting. Use of thread makes distinctive textures and tends to make isolated figures surrounded by the canvas.
