About the Exhibit:
"Transitional Realities" refers to the changes in time, space, and emotions of a person, and how they allow these changes to shape and affect them. The five artists participating in this exhibition bring forth non-objective representations of their own external and internal realities.Linda Arreola creates geometric pieces, which can be seen as “portals” into her internal realities. Her artwork speaks of a connection between all things, and works as a “vehicle that transmits spirit.”
Chenhung Chen exhibits both two and three-dimensional work that she hopes will help viewers become more aware of their surrounding realities. Chen feels that humans themselves are transitional, and she wants her work to emphasize a human’s potential to seek out and experience that reality.
Donghyun Chung creates her pieces by layering and collaging hanji paper on wood, and then sanding and sculpting the paper. This results in beautifully layered works resembling paintings. These represent how her realities are ever changing and evolving over a span of time.
Joshua Elias creates work that represents his creative subconscious. He is greatly influenced by “hypnogogia,” or the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep. He believes that it is within that transitional state, where our creativity runs wild, that every person creates their own personal architecture, and their own personal realities.
Ramon Ramirez exhibits paintings that are a product of a monumental transition in his life, as he recently made the choice to alter his diet. Ramirez will simultaneously work on both abstract and representational pieces, which he sees as transitioning between his internal and external realities.
