Don Soker Contemporary Art is pleased to announce
Carole Jeung “Recent Paintings”
An exhibition from October 24 – December 5, 2015
Opening reception Saturday, October 24, 4 to 6 pm
The oil paintings in this exhibition were produced by Carole Jeung during the past 3 years. They are explorations of interior places and how one moves through them. She looks for connections and transitions, where things intersect and react, where parts are hidden and revealed, where the blurs exist. She thinks about how perceptions shift and change.
Jeung creates a sense of space on a flat surface by using simple forms and color to find what exists inside and in between. Layering and repetition (both of form and motion) give her a method of investigation and moments of true surprise. As the layers build she discovers spatial and color relationships and a structure emerges. These relationships then evolve and adapt over time as she adds and subtracts paint; some elements insist on staying or disappearing, and colors change. It becomes a balance between letting the materials determine what will happen and imposing control over them. The paintings take a long time to complete - they follow their own timeline until they feel settled.
Abstract, unavailable, almost decipherable textures emerge and recede in a terrain of images and color. The resulting paintings are charged zones, successive layers of the marked and the empty, color and space, surface and depth, explored and almost known. Carole Jeung received a BA from Stanford University and an MFA from California College of Arts and Crafts (CCA) where she is currently on the faculty.
