DOOSAN Gallery New York is delighted to present ‘Interplay’, a solo exhibition of work by Suzanne Song, from November 17 to December 17, 2011. Song will feature new paintings and an installation which invite us to develop our vision and expand our perception.
Suzanne Song uses selected colors and repeating forms to create a series of paintings that assert their presence as both objects and illusions. The vocabulary of colors reflects the cold grey floors and bright white walls ubiquitous to most galleries and museums. Using limited palette of colors, Song uses white paint and airbrushed shadows to create different types of illusions.
Across a rough picture plane, Song reveals the visual sleight of hand, only to bring them back to the material reality of the object. Song creates illusions to dispel our fixed notions of space and reconsider the relationship of the mind to the world.
As perceptually engaging as they are cerebral, these works simultaneously construct and deconstruct the visual logic to our reality that gives the viewer a delightful optical experience.
Suzanne Song received her MFA from Yale School of Art, Yale University in 2000 and a BFA from Clemson University in 1997. She has had numerous exhibitions throughout the United States including solo and two persons exhibitions at Sabina Lee Gallery, Caren Golden Fine Art and Michael Steinberg Fine Art and group exhibitions at The Drawing Center, Smack Mellon, Richard Levy Gallery, Anna Kustera Gallery and Paik Hye Young gallery in Seoul. Song’s accolades include the Smack Mellon Studio Fellowship and the George R. Bunker Award at Yale. Suzanne Song is an Elizabeth Foundation of Art Fellow in Painting (2011).
