Artist Statement

With evolving techniques and static themes, my process is an active exploration of spirituality, sexuality, mortality, fear and joy; woven together through art and design. I strive to create a playful world; the viewer is encouraged to indulge and get lost in multi-dimensional work. The deeper the inspection, the greater the reward.

ORANGE IN A CORNER
HAEJIN PARK

September 16 ~ October 15, 2017
Opening Reception: September 16  6-8PM

 

AG Gallery is pleased to announce Haejin Park’s first solo exhibition “ORANGE IN A CORNER”, opening on September 16, 2017. Please be invited for the opening reception on Saturday, September 16, and meet the artist.

Haejin Park is a New York based artist and illustrator. Please be invited for the opening reception and meet the artist on Saturday, September 16 evening. Haejin graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with BFA in Illustration, and since then she has been working as an illustrator based in New York City. Her clients include New York Times, BuzzFeed, PLANSPONSOR, Portland Mercury, edible Manhattan, and more. She has received awards from 3×3, Society of Illustrators, Association of Illustrators. She also enjoys writing zines and making small books. She has been traveling and selling those zines and books at following events ; Rhode Island Expo, Comic Art Chicago, Toronto Comic Arts Festival, Museum of Comic Arts.

If you knew even a little bit about her work, that means also you have met unique characters living in her work. Those characters (such as Mushroom Dancer, Toilet Princess, and Worm Players, and more…) are like signs that take you to her original stories and imaginary fairly tales. Her academic background is Illustration, however, larger scale paintings, drawings, and sculptures that she has kept making in her personal time are as powerful as her illustration with vivid colors and cheerful energy, only they are bigger and we can feel her imagination, joy of creation, and freedom. This will be the first opportunity that we can enjoy a collection of Haejin Park’s personal works.

Artist Statement
Two girls live in my room.
One is a five years old, she is quiet and decisive, sitting on a center.
And an older girl in a corner. She is sick and red, always desiring manic feelings.
I work like constantly switching back and forth between them.

I start by creating characters such as Worm Players, Big Headed Boy, Mushroom Dancer, Toilet Princess. After tilting them, I get excited to add a story and fill out the surroundings. With an illustration background, my process is like writing a short story.
I use watercolor as my main medium, as I think it is innocent and honest.
Recently, I started to make them into a fun toy using air dry clay and paper mache.   
Orange In A Corner is my first solo exhibition. It will show my recent personal works, featuring original watercolor paintings, drawings, zines, and sculptures.

Rica TASAKA

Embroidered NY

On View: August 18, 2017 ~ August 24, 2017

AG Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition with artist Rica TASAKA “Embroidered NY”, openng on August 18, 2017.

Rica TASAKA is a Japanese artist who explores washi as an art medium like oil paints and clay. Tasaka’s works are made completely with only embroider and Washi-paper collage. Tasaka collects images from around the world. Based on snapshots pictures she shot in cities she visited she creates her washi-art. Tasaka explores everyday subjects in her work that make us rediscover joys and happiness that lives in small parts of our daily life in a specific location of the world.

In this exhibition Tasaka created NYC landscape series using pictures and sketches of her visit to NYC last year as inspirations. We suggest gallery visitors to get extra closer to artworks this time, and see the details. They look like illustrations at a first sight but actually collaged paper and stitchings that make those “snapshot-like” pictures.

Exhibition is on view through August 24th, 2017. Please visit the gallery and enjoy how NYC was like to a visiting artist, you may discover something similar or different from what you know.

Statement and Message from Artist

 I was born and raised in the bustling, food-centered city of Osaka, Japan in 1974.
 I spent my childhood creating unique works of art using everyday items I found around the house. Later in life, I entered the Life Design Department at the Kyoto Saga University of Arts.
 While at the university, I designed furniture and various other household goods. After graduating in 1995, I worked at a company as an interior designer.
 During that time I started working on my own art and in the process found traditional Japanese washi paper which totally changed my work. Washi paper has special textures that I can’t express using just paint. The texture and the hand-torn edges of the paper absorb and dissipate the ink in a way that makes each piece unique. I also embroider directly on the washi paper to give my work a three-dimensional texture and a visual rhythm as a single piece of art based on everyday life.
 I resigned from my company in 2000 and became a freelance illustrator. I did illustrations in various media, as I actively worked on creating solo exhibitions. In 2015, I held my first public exhibition at the Karuizawa New Art Museum in Nagano. Then I had my first exhibit in Brooklyn, New York.

 Coming to New York in 2017, greatly expanded my experience and style. The overwhelming energy of the city exhibited in its food, people, and lively culture caused me to explore a sense of movement and irregularity in my art. This has added power in addition to the sense of healing which was present in my previous work.

 I hope that whoever sees my art feels like they have made a small discovery in their lives and it causes them to smile. That’s what keeps me going as an artist.
