Open Studio & Screening
Join us! Thursday, November 18 - 6-9pm
*Mask and proof of vaccination required
Maria Chang is back for her second residency at Mirabo Press! We’re opening the print shop and gallery to the public for a look at Chang’s newest work, including works in progress printed with Mirabo during her stay.
Chang’s work combines tools and materials more often used in sculpture with the traditional surface of a canvas, creating large and dimensional paintings at her studio at Gana Art in Seoul, Korea. Her time at Mirabo will be spent exploring methods of printmaking that push these paintings forward. Chang will be drawing inspiration from the palette of our lovely city, and making one-of-a-kind experimental works as well as a few limited edition prints.
Please join us for an Open Studio event and get a behind the scenes look at a painting practice translated to monotypes, screen prints, and embossings, linoleum blocks used as canvas, and film work by Kyle Kim that beautifully captures Chang’s studio practice. It’s rare for the public to see an artist’s work before it has reached its final stage, we hope you come and take advantage of the opportunity!
To do our best to ensure the safety of our visitors, masks and proof of vaccination are required.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Maria Chang grew up between the United States and South Korea, moving to Korea after high school to study fine art at Hongik University. Her work describes the breakdown and reconstruction of objects perceived through her own blurry vision—a result of losing focus in her right eye. Chang’s artwork has been shown across South Korea and in the United States. She is currently working as a Gana Atelier Resident Artist with Gana Art, one of the first major art galleries established in South Korea in 1983.
