Featuring four artists who create beautiful visual harmony inspired by nature Boom Box, like the compact portable stereo, overflows with various rhythms and melodies that combine together to create a complex yet intimate visual symphony. The white walled rectangular gallery is transformed into a vibrant celebration of colorful blooms, pods, branches, and burgeoning flora. The exhibition includes intricate multi-layered dreamlike abstractions of Jung Hyang Kim, a fruit-laden lush urban jungle installation by Ming Fay, delicate yet quietly mesmerizing surreal landscapes by Amy Chan, and painted abstractions and delightful wire constructions that straddle the boarder between nature and artificiality in the form of rhizomes and stolons by Hyungsub Shin.
