September 9 - October 14
Please join us for an Opening Reception: Sunday, September 9, 3-5pm
Zemer Peled was born and raised in a Kibbutz in the northern part of Israel. After completing her BFA at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, she earned her MA from the Royal College of Art in the UK.
Zemer Peled’s work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world. Her sculptural language is informed by her surrounding environment, engaging viewers with themes of memories, identity and place. Her works are formed out of thousand of ceramic shards, constructed into forcible organic sculptures and installations.
A native of Seoul, Korea, Yong Joo Kim received her MFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from the Rhode Island School of Design and her BFA in Arts and Crafts (Metals and Textiles) from Sook Myung Women’s University.
For the past 9 years, artist Yong Joo Kim has worked exclusively with one material, Velcro hook and loop fasteners. While most would find the material unattractive, mundane, or insignificant, she has continually produced beautiful work inspired by the qualities of uncovered from within the Velcro. She leverages her interaction with the material to improvise, letting herself be surprised. She finds such a relationship between mastery, variety, and sustainability fascinating.
Christian Faur was born in New York City and moved throughout his childhood. After serving in the Army, he earned a degree in physics from California State University, Northridge, then an MFA from the Transart Institute in Austria and New York. Christian has exhibited his work in museums and galleries internationally, most recently at the Daejeon Museum of Art in South Korea.
"The things that inspire me to create, I find, are buried deep within the structures and systems that form the underpinning of our natural world. These invisible layers are seen most clearly through the lens of logic, which is used to decipher the underlying rules and laws that govern the physical world. In my work, I try to mimic these elegant structures of nature by developing systems of my own with which to express my thoughts and ideas, so that the medium and the message appear as one." - Christian Faur
