100 Variation of Celestial Mandala detail 1 72 copyright © by Heejung Kim

CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) presents “Celestial Mandala,” an exhibition featuring recent ink works on paper by Korean artist Heejung Kim. Her art is influenced by Tibetan Mandala paintings, especially by the patterns and symbols found in them. Her star-like images come from actual dreams she has had since her childhood. Using repetition like the mantras in meditation, Heejung pushes her creative visions into a hypnotic space carrying the viewer into a surreal sense of illusion and the feeling of moving through a vast void. The exhibition will be on view from May 31 – July 31, 2019.

There will be an Opening Reception with short talk by the artist on May 31 from 7:30 – 8:30 pm in conjunction with Crossing Boundaries Concert Series Vol. 5 featuring Korean Traditional Music at 8:30 pm. This program has been curated by gamin, with assistance from Suechung Koh, Exhibitions Director & Curator at Gallery Yonhee at the Korean Community Center in NJ.
