Books and Ritual: Works by Hyeyoung Shin

The (FREE!) opening reception for
Books and Ritual: Works by Hyeyoung Shin
is this Friday, October 14th from 6-9pm at WNYBAC!
Refreshments, a cash bar,
and a good time will be provided

This show will feature works by Korean printmaker, book artist, and installation artist Hyeyoung Shin. The exhibit will consist of recent works including artist's books, paper sculpture, drawings, and prints. Shin aims to create a structural and ambiguous space through which viewers are invited to recall and create memories within the space of her art. Shin works with the medium of books and paper due to their ability to hold and share experiences and memories, with the ultimate goal of creating a human relationship between the artist and the viewer. The themes of bottles and fish are recurring throughout her work; the bottle, according to Shin, represents the body, and the fish act as a metaphor for the chaotic yet graceful way in which emotions and memories shift and change.

The works featured in this exhibit will showcase Shin's careful attention to detail and process, as well as the wide range and great depth of her work as a book artist and printmaker.

This show will be on view from October 14th through December 10, 2011

Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday 12-6pm
