> DESCRIPTION

Newman Popiashvili Gallery is pleased to present the second solo exhibition of Jaye Moon. Moon's recent work manipulates the form of containers to underline their relation to consumer psychology. In these "container" sculptures, Moon continues to explore the ways people inhabit and understand spaces. The new work is constructed from the same materials she has been working with since the previous exhibition - semi-translucent white and fluorescent Plexiglas, and Legos - but with the addition of mirrored surfaces and more complex interior patterns and designs, creating a wide array of optical variation on the interiors as well as the exterior surfaces. The home-like structures are now encased in filing boxes and storage containers.

The sculptures vary in size and in architectural design. For one piece, Moon created isometric drawings on the surface of the box, and further manipulated the surface by cutting out some parts of the designs to show the interior spaces. Mirrors were also added to create optical and holographic reflections onto walls, floors and any surrounding element. Her integration of house into container, or vice-versa, plays on the idea that the functional similarities between the two are interchangeable, and that either one could potentially, in Moon's case, store the other.

Jaye Moon is a Brooklyn based artist. She received her MFA from Pratt Institute. She has previously exhibited at the DUMBO Arts Center, White Columns, Artists Space and Galeria Max Estrella in Madrid, Spain. She is also scheduled for a solo show with Bendana-Pinel Art Contemporain in Paris, France in 2009.
