LOS ANGELES, CA (November, 2013) - LA Artcore is pleased to present a three-artist show of three very different approaches to art, an exhibit that is sure to have something to interest everyone.
Hung Viet Nguyen produces vibrant, energetic paintings that blur the line between representation and abstract. Their surfaces are teeming with marks and surface treatments, buzzing with creative energy. In some works, paint is shaped and sculpted to create a textured relief of a seascape of portrait, while in other cases this personal method is applied to create an almost cellular display, as though viewing plant life through a microscope. It is something of a wonder to view the complexity and number of colors, which somehow defy muddiness, producing a clean, natural feeling.
Eunsil Jeoung, long-time Los Angles resident and alumni of the top art school in South Korea, Hongik, is an abstract painter who works with geometric shapes, color fields and contrasting elements, working with each painting as a singularity that demands its own resolution with itself. Her preferential shapes, and the nuances she uses to ameliorate their relationships to each other are where the signature hand of the artist is revealed.
Rebecca Edwards produces symbolic artwork charged with personal meaning but visually having the softened, refreshing noise and intrigue of her combined monotype and collage method. Recurring symbols have a personal meaning that comes across visually as whimsical yet wry, highly subtle and resembling certain work by Louise Bourgeois. They carry only hints of an almost dark undertone just beneath the soft, dreamy prints. She is interested in the paradox of a contemporary woman trying to have it all, the long legs of a chair being like an attractive woman facing the utilitarian entanglements of motherhood, or the vulnerable and fertile rabbit.
