Vantage Point VII Jiha Moon

Turbulent Utopia

February 2, 2008 - July 6, 2008

The Mint Museum of Art

 

 

Jiha Moon’s expressive and seductive paintings examine the symbiotic relationships of opposites. Born in Korea, and now residing in Atlanta, her dynamic compositions utilize a rich repository of symbols from both Eastern and Western traditions. Moon utilizes the genre of landscape as a point of departure, but her paintings bear no resemblance to pastoral studies. Rather, they offer a rich melding of abstraction and representation, painting and drawing. Fascinated by the blending of disparate parts, Moon has stated, “I am a cartographer of cultures and an icon maker in my lucid worlds. I want to be a visual interpreter of the mixed cultural worlds of my generation.”

 

This is Moon's first solo museum exhibition.
