If you are in New York, make sure to catch artists Seonna Hong, Caroline Hwang and Saelee Oh at the Sloan Fine Art for their three-person exhibition “I Know What You're Thinking…” While Seonna Hong's paintings exude nostalgia and whimsy, they are equally sophisticated, soulful and elegantly rendered. Having mounted several successful solo exhibitions, Hong takes this opportunity to further explore her love of collaboration and mixed media in several large and small scale two-dimensional pieces and site-specific installation. Brooklyn-based Caroline Hwang is known for elaborate stitched and quilted work made from fabric, thread and paint. For her current series, she appropriates and reinterprets the nautical flag system, humanizing their imagery and messages with the ideas, issues and predicaments that challenge us all in our daily lives. With her delicate painted and cut paper pieces and intricate constructions, Saelee Oh embraces a feminine aesthetic and fanciful palette without sacrificing serious ideas. Often incorporating found objects (including one exhibition in which she utilized tampon disposal bags stolen from a ladies room) and elements found in nature such as live plants, sticks and rocks, Oh tells stories of connectedness, alienation, identity and female empowerment. The exhibition starts today, March 18, and runs through April 11, 2009 Sloan Fine Art 128 Rivington Street (corner of Norfolk) New York, NY 10002 212.477.1140 sloanfineart.com
