Sun K. Kwak

Kwak is most known for her “space drawings” and her solo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art in 2009 (New York, NY). Creating spontaneous expression with masking tape as a medium, the artist records her first reaction to the visual and emotional qualities of a given space. She has exhibited widely, including group exhibitions at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (2010, New York, NY), Colorado University Art Museum (2012, Boulder, CO), Asian Art Museum (2012, San Francisco, CA), Samsung Museum of Art (2010, Seoul, Korea), The New Art Gallery (2009, Walsall, England), Haus der Lulturen der Welt Museum (2008, Berlin, Germany), Total Museum of Art (2008, Seoul, Korea), and the 6th Gwangju Biennale, (Gwanju, Korea). Born in South Korea, Kwak received her MFA at New York University and BFA at Sookmyung University in Seoul, Korea. She currently works and lives in New York.

 

J.T. Kirkland

Kirkland strives to find clarity and resolution in line, color, and form, while challenging viewers' perceptions of surface and space through simple, precise gestures on woods. Kirkland has had vari­ous solo exhibitions at Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (2014, Richmond, Virginia), McDaniel College (2014, Westminster, MD), Larson Gallery at University of Minnesota (2010, St. Paul, MN), and University of

Pheonix (2005, Reston, VA); various group exhibitions at McLean Project for the Arts (2013, McLean, VA) and Greator Reston Arts Center (2013, Reston, CA), and many other places. His work is included in the permanent collection of the University of Kentucky Art Museum.

 

Farsad Labbauf

Influenced by traditional Persian arts such as calligraphy, tapestry, and the poetry of Rumi, Labbauf’s works convey his metaphysical approach to painting where line, color and texture are used less to depict an image than to describe its essence. His paintings have been featured in more than sixty shows across the globe, including Saatchi Gallery (2009, London, England), Esfahan Museum of Contemporary Art (2005, Esfaran, Iran), Ex Aurum Museum (2010, Pescara, Italy) and in New York, Boston, Amsterdam, Tehran.

 

Seung Mo Park

Through his meticulous renderings over layers of wire mesh, Park challenges the viewers to examine their ephemeral surroundings through his engaging, illusionistic works. Park has had his solo exhibitions world-wide including at Dennos Museum (2014, Traverse City, MI); and group ex­hibitions at the Museum of Art and Design (2011, New York, NY), the Saatchi Gal­lery (2009, London, England), the Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art (2012, Ansan, Ko­rea), Fairmont Bar Al Bahr (2012, Abu Dhabi, UAE), Pohang Art Cen­ter (2011, Pohang, Korea), Hanga­ram Art Museum, (Seoul, Korea), Insa Art Center (2010, Seoul, Ko­rea), Ansan Arts Center (2009, An­san, Korea) and Albemarle Gallery (2008, London, England).
