Saelee Oh TANGLED TALES &
Drew Beckmeyer REAL DEEP THOUGHTS
MAY 17 through JUNE 14, 2008
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 17, 6-9pm
Tangled Tales, a new show opening May 17th, features new work by Saelee Oh in the main gallery, and Real Deep Thoughts, a mixed media installation by Drew Beckmeyer in the project room.
Saelee Oh's Tangled Tales is a collection of paintings and sculptural explorations of the sorrows and hopes brought on by love. Oh invents rich imaginary worlds ruled by mythic creatures and flora, as experienced from the eyes of a female protagonist. Inspired by folk arts, organic forms, and vintage children's books, Oh creates multi-layered works by integrating traditional painting and drawing with three-dimensional paper cut-outs. Tangled Tales is Oh's first solo show at Tinlark Gallery.
Running concurrently in the project room is Real Deep Thoughts, a solo show by Art Center graduate Drew Beckmeyer. Applying his finely attuned observational skills, Beckmeyer attempts to comprehend the societal ritual known as Spring Break.
Parking available in the Crossroads of the World lot on Las Palmas. Kids' crafts from 6-7:30.
