Nature a Moment: Visions of the World from Three Korean-American Artists
Ann Arbor, MI 48105 United States
September 14 @ 10:00 am - November 15 @ 4:30 pm
Three Chicago-area Korean-American artists render deeply personal interpretations of the natural world in the exhibit “Nature a Moment” at Matthaei Botanical Gardens. Using woodcut, painting on canvas, and mixed media, Linda Hyong, Sung Eun Hong, and Seong Ok Lee explore the world of flowers, gardens, and nature in vivid works that slow time to a fleeting present moment.
Linda Hyong is a University of Michigan alumna and former teaching assistant in the U-M Stamps School of Art & Design. She draws her inspiration from Claude Monet’s water lily garden in France to create her own modern interpretation of impressionism. Seong Ok Lee is inspired by flowers, which she believes are the most beautiful forms in nature. In her dream-like, nearly abstract paintings, Sung Eun Hong communicates her vision of what she calls “pure dreams and fantasy.”
Exhibit runs September 14 through November 15, 2019 at the
University of Michigan Matthaei Botanical Gardens, 1800 N. Dixboro Rd., Ann Arbor. Free.
