Gallery EXIT is pleased to present solo exhibition "Dash and Symphony” by JEONG Yun Kyung, the London based Korean artist’s first solo in Hong Kong. The exhibition will open on 11 July 2020 and remain on view through 22 August 2020. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, 11 July from 2pm to 6pm.

JEONG practices deviated from the East-Asian ink traditions and aesthetics, combining meticulous inkscape with dynamic strokes of abstract expressionism. Her works experiment with the spatial space and symbolic representation, with vivid colour intertwine with the tranquil and orderly geometric structures beneath, balancing between completeness with blankness.

Some of JEONG’s recent paintings such as “ICEE” and “Blooming Eggs” employs metaphorical elements from domestic settings, simulate the movement and structure of the physical space. The series of works symbolise the human perspectives, depicting the moment when breaking into the wilderness.

In “The Given” and “The Given II”, The smooth luminous lines travel within the delicate space of repeating motifs and collage textures. The bold lines and strokes, either continuous and abruptly, is the artist’s attempt to juxtapose between different spaces, both digitally and physically.

鄭潤慶的近作《ICEE》及《Blooming Eggs》從現實的居家空間攝取靈感,重構物質世界的形態和規律。畫中斑斕的視覺原素喻意人類與大自然的博奕。

新作《Given》和《Given II》中噴墨般光滑的線條穿插於細緻如禪繞般的構圖和拼貼中。鄭潤慶以靈動的線條,連綿不斷或斷斷續續,把現實及電子屏幕的創作空間和畫面連繫起來。
