Exhibition Highlights

About The Exhibition

Jiha Moon's expressive and seductive paintings examine the symbiotic relationships of opposites. Born in Korea, and now residing in Atlanta, her dynamic compositions utilize a rich repository of symbols from both Eastern and Western traditions. Moon utilizes the genre of landscape as a point of departure, but her paintings bear no resemblance to pastoral studies. Rather, they offer a rich melding of abstraction and representation, painting and drawing. Fascinated by the blending of disparate parts, Moon has stated, "I am a cartographer of cultures and an icon maker in my lucid worlds. I want to be a visual interpreter of the mixed cultural worlds of my generation."

This exhibition marks Moon's first solo museum exhibition. She has previously exhibited in New York at White Columns, Asia Society and The Drawing Center. Moon’s paintings are within the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, Richmond; and Asia Society, New York.
