RISD Korea Annual Show 2009

My Suggestion for "Art as Conversation: What do YOU see?"

At Gallery JK Space in Itaewon, Seoul, Korea
October 2009

For this project, my curator helped me choose 2 of my works that could best accomplish my goal of asking my viewers to share what they SAW in my works. I hung up 2 cork boards for my audiences to share what they *each* saw in my paintings. The same two paintings were shared online --- on Cyworld and Facebook.

The comments I got from both the offline and online viewers me were totally amazing! The comments were wonderfully varied and full of imagination. Oftentimes, they revealed what each of their personalities *tend to* think more about. :-)

(I'll try and update this post with some of their comments at some later date...)

Art as Conversation: What Do YOU See?

Ever since I learned a little bit about Post-Modernism in paintings, I began to wonder about the functions and roles that art could or should take.

After some pondering, all I could come up with *honesty* was that art could help people talk about their differences without having to contradict one another.

Well, so here's my question -
What do YOU see in each of the paintings here?

Share, share! It is your interaction that makes my paintings come alive :-)
