“Color and Gravity”
This exhibition mainly shows her new works and also several paintings from
the "SKELETON" series which were chosen for the cover of her first anthology
published in February 2012.
The motifs depicted on canvas are books; they are painted as belts of different colors competing against each other and it adds 3 dimensional as well as 2 dimensional feeling to the works. In order to express the inconsistent relation of color and weight (the color itself does not have weight) she treated the canvas itself as a statue. It will be our pleasure for a viewer to enjoy her new works created in a viewpoint unlike the last "STATUE" series that rebuilt statues in the canvas.
