Gallery Exhibition: David H. Wells

Sep 2-Nov 14

Gallery Exhibition: David H. Wells 

Rotary Ice House Gallery - 9 AM

This exhibit examines the empty homes and foreclosed dreams littering the American landscape in the wake of the foreclosure crisis. After a house is foreclosed upon there is a fleeting moment when the ghosts of the one-time owners are all that is left – before the houses are cleaned and returned to the real estate market. The photographs in this exhibit capture the remaining signs of life that once filled these emptied houses bringing to light ideas about home, family and the American Dream. Opening Reception: Thursday, September 25, from 4:30 – 7pm

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.
