January 1st 2005 - January 14th 2005
Opening Reception: Saturday New Year's Day, January 1st, from 2 - 7 p.m.
Ward-Nasse Gallery is pleased to announce the second one-person exhibition of the Korean born painter Chungja Moon.
Although trained in Oriental ink painting, Chungja Moon is also familiar with Western aesthetics, having studied for several years with Leo Manso at the Artists StudentŐs League in New York City. Among Western artists, she shares a close kinship with Vincent van Gogh, especially in her Expressionist brushstrokes and the use of brilliant, sun-splashed yellow hues. However, her vortex-like compositions and manner of emancipating pure color from a merely descriptive role is also reminiscent of Franz Kupka.
This exhibition takes place at the Ward-Nasse Gallery, 178 Prince Street, between Thompson and Sullivan. Join us at the opening reception on New Year's Day, January 1st, from 2-5 p.m. For more information, please contact: Biliana Videnova at: 212 925 6951
