SPRING RESIDENTS. I.IV – XII.VI 2018
Ilsoon Jeon is a recent graduate of the Pratt Institute in New York. She primarily creates two-dimensional sculptures, which are the result of her time-consuming, meditative practice. Although most of her pieces are non-objective and geometric in nature, she has begun to implement text into her works allowing for another element of intimacy and conversation with the viewer.
Looking Luna; Concealing with superfluous, sterile structures
On the BARTR exhibition, Gabriel exhibited a series of paintings created during the residency based on photographs taken in the 7th and 8th districts. The images offer an outsider's view of details considered valuable to the artist. Signage, architectural fronts and the spaces between them acted as starting points for these abstractions. The images are depicted in an enriched energetic pallet vital and characteristic to his personality within the field of image making.
