Gallery Yonhee at KCC (100 Grove Street, Tenafly, NJ 07670) is pleased to present the Heejung Kim Solo exhibition "Neo - Geo". The show will run fron Feb. 4 - 26, 2019, with an opening reception on Friday, Jan. 8th from 6:30 pm and the Music Concert will start from 7:30PM by Hyunmin Lee (Bariton), Jeemin Son (Piano).
Heejung Kim displays the expression of stars using the Geometric pattern of Tibetan Mandala and the symbol of Buddhism with abstract expressionist concerns. Ever since she was a child, Kim loved watching the stars. It inspired her into creating the various repeated patterns to create certain shapes, accurate intervals, and natural colors. The pattern of light and dark that is generated through these two processes radiates into achromatic color in her canvas and also has astonishing graphic effect.
Kim’s works show sophisticated surfaces made up of elegant color-sensitivity combinations whose curves, lines, dotted patterns and engaging arrays indicate a conspicuous way of perceiving our surroundings, and speak to her lasting exploration of and attraction with the built background. In addition to the geometric patterns, Kim's inclusion of things in everyday life add to the already complex visuals of her work. Her works also describe the dynamism of sight through her art, often creating a disorienting perceptual efficacy and taking in the viewer’s eye.
Heejung Kim is an Artist based in New York. She received her MFA at State University of New York at Stony Brook, MA in Art Education at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL, and her BFA at Duk-Sung Women’s University in Korea. She currently lives in New York and continues her artistic journey by devoting most of her time to works as a global artist.

김희정 작가는 이번 전시를 통해 지오메트릭 도형의 새로운 해석 Neo-Geo를 화두로 제시합니다. 어린시절부터 밤하늘의 별을 유난히 좋아했는데, 그 속의 이야기들이 작가의 상상력을 통해 점과 선을 통한 여러 변형된 도형으로 펼쳐집니다.
밤하늘의 많은 별자리들은 신화이야기를 창조해 냈습니다. 이런 이야기들을 작가의 경험들을 바탕으로 창조해낸 Neo-Geo는 김희정 작가의 우주입니다. 혹자는 만달라 라고 하고 혹자는 종교의 심볼이라 하지만 Neo-Geo는 작가의 눈을 통해 본 밤하늘 이며, 별이고 우주 입니다.
김희정 작가는 덕성여대 BFA, 일리노이주 어바나 샴페인대학 예술 교육학 MA, 스토니브룩 뉴욕주립대학에서 MFA 를 받았습니다.
