Born in Korea, and working in New York and Portland, OR, Sang-ah Choi packs her work with a seductive blend of East and West, kitsch and classical, contemplative and commercial, plasmic and plastic. Choi uses glitter, holograms, paint, and Sumi ink to create swirling, intricate patterns of bubbles, Venuses with cartoon eyes, and Taoist nature symbols for immortality—all interwoven into candy-hued fantastic landscapes. Featuring paintings, drawings, large-scale pop-up paper sculptures, and pop-up books, the artist's first solo museum exhibition will include several works created specifically for the show.
