Jiha Moon
Double Welcome, Most Everyone’s Mad Here



Jiha Moon harvests cultural elements native to Korea, Japan, and China and then unites them with Western elements to investigate the multi-faceted nature of our current global identity as influenced by popular culture, technology, racial perceptions, and folklore. Featuring over fifty works, Moon blurs the lines between Western and Eastern identified iconography such as the characters from the online game Angry Birds© and smart phone Emojis which float alongside Asian tigers and Indian gods, in compositions that appear both familiar and foreign simultaneously.

Susan Klein




Klein’s painting explores questions of time, of accumulation and losses, of spaces that become layered by history. In her paintings, she often combines imagery from separate places and times into one image. Usually, she begins with a landscape painting, sometimes rural, sometimes urban. She then works over these representational paintings, referencing the visual world of objects.
