April 23rd – May 15th, 2016
Reception: Saturday, April 23rd, 2-5 p.m.
loop Gallery is pleased to announce Pages from Life’s Journey, a new exhibition by Sung Ja Kim-Chisholm.
The pieces that comprise Kim-Chisholm’s latest exhibition symbolically communicate the vital significance of the pages that make up the books of our lives. Our memories, experiences, hopes, joys and disappointments are each symbolized by a page or a coil in the unfolding of our individual life journeys.
The works are made with white fabric saturated with white plaster. The fabric symbolizes how our memories and experiences are tightly woven together within the events of each of our lives, while the central importance of the colour white, through its reflection of most of the wavelengths of visible light symbolizes how our memories, experiences, hopes, joys and disappointments are reflected in our lives.
Kim-Chisholm is a Toronto artist and art educator, who has been a longstanding member of Loop. She has participated in many group and solo exhibitions in both South Korea and Canada and has also been retained for many private commissions in both Asia and in North America. She graduated from Chu-Gye University for the Arts in Korea and the Ontario College of Art & Design University. Her work can be found in numerous private collections.
