Jung San: Understanding Beyond Words Part 2

05/07/2015
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Sandra Lee Gallery
San Francisco 

Opening reception May 7th, 5:30-7:30 pm, Exhibition May 5th-May 30th

SANDRA LEE GALLERY is proud to once again showcase the work of Korean and Bay Area artist, Jung San. Jung San is known for his meticulous and complex works, which he infuses with his Buddhist ideas. His work often contains unconventional materials, such as razorblades, nail polish, and matchboxes. These innovative pieces leave viewers in both deep contemplation and wonder. This May, Jung San returns with the second part of his ‘Beyond Words Series’, which illustrates his development as an artist. Jung San’s new works convey these ideas through their freeform exuberance, which contrasts well with the clean lines that defined Part 1 of the ‘Beyond Words Series.’

Free
