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.

“Still-Summer” One Window Exhibition by kyoko Imazu

2017KyokoImazuStill-Summer

Kyoko Imazu One Window Exhibition
June 3, 2017 ~ June 30, 2017
Opening Reception: June 3 (Sat.) 6-8pm

AG Gallery is proud to present “Still-Summer”, a one window exhibition by Kyoko Imazu. Imazu is Japanese artist, printmaker and sculptor, living and working in Australia. She is mostly known for her printmaking and her work has been featured in multiple solo and group exhibitions museums and galleries including Kyoto Museum of Art in Kyoto, Japan, Japan Foundation Gallery win Sydney Australia, Odd One Out in Hong Kong, Davidson Galleries in Seattle, USA, and many more. Imazu has been featured at AG Gallery since 2014, and this is her second solo exhibition at AG Gallery after “World of Kyoko Imazu” in 2015.

“Drawing animals and monsters is one of my earliest and most important memories from my childhood. My drawings include animals like rabbits, cats and birds and also strange creatures, Yokai from Japanese folklore. Growing up in Japan, I was convinced—and very scared—that there were Yokai and other creatures lurking behind me and or hiding in the dark corners of the house. They were as real as dogs and cats.” -Kyoko Imazu

Moving to Australia from Japan as a young adult, Kyoko’s work draws narratives from nostalgic memories of childhood in Japan and features insects, animals and Yokai found throughout Japanese folklore that she read and listened to as a child. Her ceramics bring new life to her two dimensional realm of prints and into reality–the ‘real world’ becomes the playground for her adorable creatures.

“Still-Summer” is AG Gallery’s first one window exhibition, featuring Kyoko Imazu’s latest sculptures and her latest original prints.

This exhibition is inspired with the term “still-life”, the still of the summer night, deep silence and calm; stillness… that brings her imaginative creatures into our realm, quietly awaiting visitors in our gallery.
