You's paintings display her ongoing experimentation with abstract polymer clay sculptures.
Sun You, visiting assistant professor of art, will open her solo exhibition, New You at Geary, 34 Main St., Millerton N.Y., from 4-6 p.m. on April 15.
It’s the second time You has exhibited at Geary, which represents emerging and mid-career artists working in a variety of media. According to the gallery, You’s exhibition, which will run until May 28, features a new series of her paintings on wood panels made with acrylic and polymer clay.
“You works with ready made palettes in both clay and acrylic, pulling a wide range of color, affect and form from limited beginnings,” the gallery says. “The paintings continue the artist’s ongoing experimentation with abstract polymer clay sculptures. These forms are made intuitively and directly with minimal tools.”
Born in Seoul, South Korea, You is a New York-based artist and has exhibited her work in galleries and museums internationally. She also founded and manages President Clinton Projects, a curatorial project, and co-runs a nonprofit artist collective gallery, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, in New York.
