Join the Student Space Gallery program for the opening of Unveiling Luminosity by Jiwoo Shin on Opening in the Gateway 1 Gallery. This exhibition will be on display from November 8 - December 3.Exhibition Statement: Unveiling Luminosity is a series of paintings I describe as my own personal sense of space. Each “space” is constructed over time from layer upon layer of abstracted gestural marks, taking detailed care to investigate contrast and luminosity. I am interested in the connections and correspondences within these spaces. I work in a calculated yet intuitive manner: adding, removing, layering and blending collectively. Playing around with these layers, the boundary between layered and revealed surfaces becomes ambiguous, leaving the viewers to stroll through the spatial arrangements with lively motion. This is a Student Space Gallery exhibition. For more information about the SSG program and how to apply for a solo-exhibition, please visit
