Visions of symbolism from around the world
One is the solo show of Jin Meyerson, titled “Endless Frontier,” at Hakgojae Gallery in central Seoul.
The 41-year-old artist, who was born in Incheon, then raised in America and is now based in Hong Kong, depicts images of crowds, cityscapes and natural landscapes distorted through his interpretations. What is unique about his works is that he combines digital technology and analog painting. He distorts selected images on a computer and paints the changed images by hand on canvases.
“The exhibition highlights each internationally renowned artist’s artistic practice and imagination that happens two-dimensionally within four corners of the rectangular format of painting,” the gallery said.
The Jin Meyerson solo show at Hakgojae runs through Oct. 6. Admission is free. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday to Sunday. The exhibit is closed on Monday. Go to Anguk Station, line No. 3, exit 2, and walk 10 minutes. For details, visit www.hakgojae.com or call (02) 720-1524~6.
