Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is pleased to present a solo exhibition with new work by Yunhee Min.
Min's paintings in the exhibition respond minutely to the physical structure of the gallery space. On view will be two horizontal paintings, composed of shaped canvases stretching along the side walls of the gallery. Seemingly foreshortening the space, vertical bands of pure color foster a complex dynamic of spatiality and at the same time disrupt the viewer's trust in space and perspective. Min's planar shifts and spatial disjunctions foster a sense of motion, a state of spinning, falling, in which our confidence in space is subtly undermined. By manipulation the perception of space and scale, Min's paintings foster an anti-perspective, a state of mind that acknowledges the body as the place where spatial truths are recognized.
