Conduit Gallery presents Soomin Jung: "Where the Earth Meets the Sky" opening reception
Conduit Gallery will present Soomin Jung's latest exhibit, "Where the Earth Meets the Sky." Born in South Korea, Jung relocated to San Antonio, in 2002 to study at the University of Texas-San Antonio, where she earned a B.F.A. and an M.F.A. in Studio Art and Art History. Since graduating in 2008, Jung has used colored pencil and graphite to create landscape drawings that explore perception and perspective specifically as it pertains to location, memory, and reproduction.
Jung’s drawings focus on the mystery, wonder and even fear we have for the magnificence of natural formations. Caverns, lakes and canyons are special places. So many are long imbued with myth and legend. While some locations are rendered as is with a little twist in lighting and color, others are collaged together and manipulated to create a brand-new place that doesn’t exist. Locations include: White Deer Lake, Jeju Island, South Korea; Maroon Bells, Colorado; Crater Lake, Oregon; Viti Thermal Lake/Viti Crater, Iceland; Glattalp Lake, Switzerland.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through February 16.
