New Jersey Emerging Artists Series – Veronica Juyoun Byun: Tactile Memories

Artist Gallery Talk: Wednesday, May 22, 2019, 7:00 – 8:00 pm

Artist Statement:
“I want my work to be a gateway, to touch the viewer more viscerally. What is felt then is both concrete and atmospheric. Furthermore, I believe in the notion that art is a language that can deliver a meaning of what is felt or sensed, but remains invisible. What is invisible is always there in a work; it is a message that is mysterious and profound. For myself, working in clay allows me the opportunity to offer “tactile pictures” and a range of impressions that I have gathered over time. These include memories and the questioning of my own Korean identity. While these impressions are unique to my experience. I believe they also cross the lines of shared human experience. Things that I have seen, heard, touched, and tasted turn into subject matter for my work. Everything that I experience in life has a potential for providing a basis from which my work can be born.”

The Opening Reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments are served.
