The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Soey Milk's new show, "Sinvaro," opens this Saturday night, December 13, at CHG Circa. An artist's reception -- always free, open to the public, and lots of fun -- will be held on Saturday from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. Says the gallery about the show and Milk's work:
SINAVRO: a pure Korean word translated loosely to mean, “ To progress slowly, almost imperceptibly.” Soey Milk reveals the delicacy of growth in her new solo exhibition. In a presentation rife with contradictions, Soey exposes what it is to be human – for her – for now. The artist humbly admits to a gradual evolution, ignited by her Korean/American cultural dichotomy, but she invites the viewer to walk with her to discover the turbulence barely contained by the serene guardians in her works.
Soey’s flawless hostesses tempt the observer with a promise of calm, only to ensnare the unsuspecting. From the infiniteness of space, to monsters of Korean folklore, each piece greets sweetly but refuses to bid farewell, instead insidiously lingering. SINAVRO celebrates the artist’s budding willingness to be flawed, while maintaining her tendency to distract. It is with measured vulnerability that Soey offers a preview of her unhurried journey.
The exhibition continues through January. CHG Circa is located at 8530-A Washington Boulevard.
