Inyoung Seoung Translates Her Drawings to Murals Using Electrical Tape

by CaroPosted on April 25, 2016

Inyoung Seoung’s work draws parallels between humankind and nature. She considers people to be in a perpetual state of growth, reaching up and moving forward like trees to light. The Korea-born, Southern California-based artist one day found herself admiring her own backyard, where she was impressed by the fact that no two trees were alike, and that they contain an infinite supply of design that she emulates in her drawings and installations.


Artifacts of Deep Emotion: The Art of Boback Emad

Meaning, in the art of Boback Emad, is unstable, tentative and exploratory. Emad, who has a one-person exhibition up at The Midway Gallery in San Francisco on view until April 22nd, was born in the U.S. to Tehran parents, then spent his early years in Pre-Revolutionary Iran, before fleeing the country just as the Shah was being ousted. He found himself in a new world without family and without any clear map of his terrain. His work reflects his loss of home and familiar landscape. Though mostly consisting of common, symbolic imagery, Emad uses universal shapes to explore the personal. His art searches for stability, for the necessary decoding and reconstruction of a lost iconography.

Construction crews were still at work on The Midway just minutes before its grand partial-opening last Friday. The 40,000-square foot complex in the Dogpatch promises something for almost everyone, with art spaces, music venues, and much more. Hearing co-founder Jeff Whitmore’s enthusiastic explanation of the compound, it almost sounds too good and too expansive to be true. With scissor lifts and bags of insulation filling much of the unfinished space, the Midway opened some of its doors with a sprawling group exhibition, sound and multimedia performances in an cavernous unfinished room, and several musical acts.
