”NY, NY”, 2018, mixed media on wood, 48 x 48 inches by Mi Kyoung Yun
(HACKENSACK, NJ) -- Riverside Gallery presents a second liminal showcase of artworks by Ung Boo Kang, Lee Dae Sun Hwa, Mi Kyoung Yun, Jan Dickey, Paula Schiller, Alice Stoler, Andrea Placer, Elizabeth Rundquist, Joan Knauer, Miriam Stern, Joan Strier, Leslie Fetner, Jenny Kim, Susan Sinek, Linda Tomaselli, Pamela Fenwick, Rosemarie Crabtree, and Sandra Frech. The exhibition runs from October 1 to 18, 2022, with an opening reception on Saturday, October 8th, from 4:00pm – 6:00pm.
Mi Kyoung Yun visualizes flowers as CD-ROMs that spring outside the picture plane. Her work is pertinent to our age that is defined by technology and may relate to the visions of Post Humanism, in which people, nature, and technology merge together to challenge the unequal relationships that are ideologically intrinsic to Humanism.
Jan Dickey is a multidisciplinary painter and installation artist who explores paint as a living substance through a process-based approach.
Jan Dickey received an MFA from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa in 2017 and a BFA from the University of Delaware in 2009. He has had solo exhibitions throughout the United States and internationally in Tokyo, Japan. Jan was a resident artist at ARTnSHELTER (Tokyo, Japan) in 2019, the Kimmel Harding Nelson Arts Center (Nebraska City, NE) in 2018, and the Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT) in 2017.

In 2021 Jan was included in the Chengdu Biennale (Chengdu, China) special exhibition “Interdependency: Meeting the Universe Halfway” curated by Shulang Zou & He Xi.

She also participated in art fairs in Korea, including Seoul, Busan, Daejon, and Gwangju.

Lee currently serves as an advisory board member in art at Carnegie Lee Foundation, Director of Korean Art Association, Full-time Artists’ Association, Gapja Artist Group, and Contemporary Artists Association.
Lee Dae Sun Hwa’s work notes: A change in my work began a few years ago. The nature inside me is not the nature or naturalism of the physical world, but the independence of the mind that is free and does so on its own and does not depend on anything, and the life that lives accordingly is nature itself (the philosophy of Laozi). The work of erasing the shape of this life and shaping abstraction as an inner structure began. Reproducing or shaping the image of nautre is not nature itself. Nature or any other image or shape is trying to find its truth. In this way, the form of nature’s image disappears, and new forms form a primitive simplicity of color through formative languages such as repeating colors and drawing, and free colors form harmony with dots and lines, and the texture is revealed as an abstract emotion.

Paula Schiller engages in the language of abstract expressionism to pay homage to the great women artists such as Joan Mitchell and Lee Krasner. A sort of luminous and meditative quality of light and color can be felt from Schiller’s paintings.

Alice Stoler makes landscapes in the tradition of abstract expressionism, following the lessons of Franz Kline and other artists.

Ungboo Kang makes highly vibrant abstract works patterned by floral splashes of paint juxtaposed with vertical white stripes. Kang’s works appear connected to the Monochrome movement in terms of abstract style and composition, although he utilizes more diverse colors in his works.
