Jiha Moon: Foreign Love

Sep 7, 2013 - Nov 2, 2013
10am - 5pm

2012/2013 Working Artist Project

The MOCA GA 2012/2013 Working Artist Project was selected by Julie Rodrigues Widholm, Pamela Alper Associate Curator, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.

Jiha Moon: Foreign Love

Jiha Moon has been working in three areas for this exhibition: works on paper, ceramic sculptures, and Norigae (traditional Korean clothing accessories, example shown at right) as art objects. She notes that “throughout the entire exhibition, my subject deals with my interests of mixing multiple cultural references (eastern, western and beyond) and playing with the idea of shifting identities. For example, I often switch the colors of familiar objects to something you would not normally see, and I adopt many different styles of paint/line application.”

“There is clearly great depth and diversity in Atlanta’s artistic pool. My selections include three dynamic female artists, all of whom explore the complex merging of abstraction and representation within painting, each in their own singular voice. I look forward to seeing how their exhibitions play a role in the ongoing vitality and plurality of painting today.”
