Solo painting exhibit “Unconscious Images” by Oonju Chun, at Weber Center: 2380 Washington Blvd, downtown Ogden.
Now thru May 1. Open during regular business hours.
“My images are devoid of any conceptual consideration or meaning. One can say it is less complicated, rather, quite
simple in its essence. I cannot explain the meaning of my work because I do not impose any. I think that is why it works
better at striking certain ‘raw’ emotions. The emotional response is direct and immediate. It goes from my eyes directly to
my heart. It does not require mental interpretation. If a viewer feels the similar emotional sensibilities as I do, then, my
paintings have spoken to them. At the end, the works are not about meaning or formal elements. All art forms evoke
emotion and those emotions are subjective. They are subjective upon one’s own life experiences, cultural experiences,
visual experiences, emotional sensibilities, etc. My paintings become what each viewer gets out of it.
I am not a conceptual painter but a spontaneous, reactionary painter. When I paint, it is a purely spontaneous visual
response to lines, colors and composition. I am not thinking on a conceptual level and I love that. It is liberating and
exhilarating. Quite simply put, this is art that is linear and without alternate construct, recognizing only itself, a mirror
reflection, art that is for its own sake, purpose and utility.”
This exhibit of Weber County artists is sponsored by Weber County and AmpedARTS.
