"Webtropolis" exhibit by Hyewon Yoon

Friday, March 04, 2022
Burton Barr Central Library
1st Floor Gallery
Yoon's work explores and organizes organic structures and landscapes experienced in everyday life.  The artist unites and manages images derived from varied life forms such as wood, flowers, plants, and so on.  The images are crystalized from the environment to form an individual world of emotion and awareness.  These imagined landscapes strive to create a peaceful mind and to share a particular vision of the beauty in nature.
