The relationship between the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional is a central element in Chung Eun Mo’s painting. Her analysis of perspective and her dedication to its construction, result in a form of conceptual art that leads to a rigorous, concrete and tangible creation of shape and space compositions. A structural approach to painting that, while retaining its originality, evokes the tradition of Le Corbusier and Josef Albers in the constancy of pursuit.
“In the exhibition Shapes and Shades at Assab One, I will be showing a combination of paintings and murals in the Sala Marinoni. Sections of the walls between the pilasters will be painted in varying configurations of shapes and shades relating to the particular paintings placed on them. I make paintings with measured shapes and colour to reflect a sense of space and light – a sense of a place, seen, imagined, felt and remembered or not recognized until it take shape on the canvas. With murals, the character of the given location, as I see it, determines large part of the image making. I find it stimulating and curious to combine the two in the ample and flexible space of Assab One.”
