Event Series Yoona Hur: Moving Stillness

Yoona Hur: Moving Stillness

Heather Gaudio Fine Art - Greenwich 382 Greenwich Ave, Greenwich, Connecticut

Heather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to present Yoona Hur: Moving Stillness, her solo exhibition at the gallery. The show will open June 6th with a reception for the artist 6-8pm and will be on view through July 20th, 2024. Born in Seoul, South Korea, Hur is a New York-based artist who explores cultural identity, spirituality and materiality through ceramics and paper. For this exhibition, Hur will present spatial dialogues between ceramic vessels and paper forms mounted on canvas. Hur’s paintings and ceramics draw from Korean traditional arts, architecture, Buddhism, and nature, as well as the Dansaekwha movement (Korean abstract painting from the 1970s). Buddhist understandings of timelessness, vulnerability and ephemerality are rooted in her artistic explorations, and she collapses time and space by reinterpreting past vernaculars through a contemporary lens. For Hur, patterns and textures are a way to suggest subtle movements and impermanence of inner awakenings. Hur honors her cultural past with paneled canvas works referencing Hanok, the classic home in Korea made of wood, stone, and Hanji paper (traditional hand-made mulberry paper). These typically have an open courtyard that creates a void – an empty space for the every-changing surrounding nature to enter. In Korean architecture, the […]
