Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 2 October 2015

FAR & FAMILIAR:Sam Chung, Steven Young Lee, & SunKoo Yuh

The exhibition will be on view from September 25th through October 17th, with an opening reception Friday, October 2nd, from 5 – 8pm.

Sam Chung's cloud vessels demonstrate a balance between form, function, and design. Drawing from historical, cultural, and experiential associations, Chung exploits the universal familiarity of pottery and imposes his own vision in order to merge disparate influences. His work is a force to bring forth a new language of pottery for the future.

Steven You ng Lee's current work examines cultural references and how individuals draw realities based on experiences and environment. Through his sculpture and vessels, he challenges preconceptions of style, form, symbolism, superstitions, and identity.

SunKoo Yuh's ceramic sculptures are composed of tight groupings of various forms including plants, animals, fish, and human figures. While Korean art and Buddhist and Confucian beliefs inform some aspects of his imagery, his work is largely driven by implied narratives that often suggest socio-political critiques.

Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10-5pm.

ST. LOUIS, MO 63108
