Gallery Exhibition: Heeseop Yoon

Jan 21-Apr 10

Gallery Exhibition: Heeseop Yoon 

Rotary Ice House Gallery - 9 AM

Heeseop Yoon studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and received her MFA from City University of New York and BFA from Chung-Ang University in Korea. Yoon’s subjects—interiors of junk shops and storage facilities—test the ability of the line to make order out chaos. Working from photographs, Yoon draws her subject matter freehand on sheets of transparent polyester film that are later attached to the gallery wall. She retains her exploratory sketches, her mistakes, and the corrections on each drawing. The lines not only situate the forms in the clutter, they also cross over, search out, and assess the entire scene. Illustrated Lecture: February 5, Wilson Hall Auditorium, 4:30 - 5:30 pm, Opening Reception: February 5, from 5:30 - 7 pm
