Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is please to present Yunhee Min’s second solo exhibition at the gallery. On view will be new large scale paintings in which the artist applied flat acrylic colors in vertical bands on subtly shaped canvases. This new body of work is inspired by the artist’s experience of living and traveling the West, mostly Texas. The horizontal expansion of land space unobstructed by buildings and the darkness and stillness of the Texan nights influenced the colors chosen for these new paintings. Ranging from warm earth colors to the darkest satin blues and purples, Yunhee Min’s paintings seem to expand space and draw the viewer into amazing depths. They undermine our secure sense of space by subtly converting our acquired logic of perspective and perception. These paintings convincingly convey the vastness of the landscape and the depth of night.
Yunhee Min received her BFA at the Art Center College of Design. Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco and at the Luckman Gallery at CalState Los Angeles. She has recently shown a site specific installation at ArtPace, San Antonio, and she is currently preparing a solo exhibition in the context of the Cerca Series at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Her work has been included, among others, in “Warped Space” at the CCAC Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco, in “Abstruction” at Artists Space, New York, in “International Abstraction: Making Painting Real” at the Seattle Art Museum, in Snap Shot at the UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, in Curious, Altoids Collection at the New Museum, New York, and in the “Windows on Wilshire” project at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles.
