The Gallery at Queen’s Park presents:

TRASH by Jeongmin Ahn

Exhibition Dates: Aug. 3rd – 28th, 2022
Gallery Hours: Wed – Sun, 10 am – 2 pm

Free Admission

Exhibition Statement

These paintings are meant to promote thoughts of consumerism and consumerism’s relationship to the ecosystem. In painting these objects I also inevitably portray the potential beauty that can be found even in things often regarded to be without value, such as used and disposed of objects. Hyperrealistic paintings require an obsessive attention to detail, and in giving this attention to an object rendered in this style, the objects will arguably be beautified in a way that suggests value. Consumerism corrupts human perception of value.

Humans have created materials, such as plastic, that allow us to have a convenient and comfortable life. Modern society is relying heavily on these materials and there are consequences to this reliance. However, people are blinded by their desire for convenience. Annually the consumption of these materials has increased. Trash is not an object that people have second thoughts about, or look carefully at. As I paint hyperrealistic paintings of trash I allow viewers to look more carefully at the objects. Hyperrealistic paintings require large amounts of time to render, and the great care and detail put into this work conflicts with the notion of the object’s disposability and lack of value. 

Artist Biography

Jeong Min Ahn is an emerging Korean hyperrealist painter, based in Vancouver BC, the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, the Sḵwxwú7mesh ̱(Squamish), Stó:lō and Səlí\lwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. He graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2020, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. He has trained professionally with hyperrealist artists in Korea, such as Jeong-Hae Kwang. His recent exhibitions include AIRE 2021, and AIRE 2020, at the Canadian federation Art Gallery, ArtRich 2019, of Richmond Art Gallery, and he was the recipient of the 2019 Richard Alm Scholar Award from the Federation of Canadian Artists. He plans to pursue a Masters Degree in Fine Arts in the years to come.

SYNOPSIS:
Having surveyed his legacy and finding it lacking in prestige, an octogenarian millionaire pharmaceutical tycoon (José Luis Gómez) decides to finance a great work of cinema. He purchases the rights to a Nobel Prize–winning novel about sibling rivalry and entrusts the property to enigmatic auteur Lola Cuevas (Penélope Cruz). A visionary conceptualist with a penchant for offscreen theatrics and micromanagement, Lola casts as her embattled co-leads a pair of veteran thespians who couldn’t be less alike: Iván Torres (Oscar Martínez) is a revered educator and legend of the stage much concerned with ethics and artistry, while Félix Rivero (Antonio Banderas) is a glamorous global star known mostly for brainless, bombastic entertainments.

EXHIBITION STATEMENT

This recent body of work represents the felt landscape of the land that I live on. Each piece begins with observation but moves beyond it, as colour and shape are used to interpret the natural world with curiosity and tenderness. The essential forms and particularities of the landscape serve as the foundation for my mark-making, while my own aesthetic ideas take the pieces somewhere altogether different. These works come from a practice of attending to the details of place, as I regularly walk and watch the way the boulevard gardens, overgrown lots, and sidewalk weeds shift throughout the seasons.

This series is a reflection on how we look to the earth for solace in times of uncertainty. Despite the reality of environmental change on a massive scale, the specific miracles of growth & decay, death & fecundity, that happen daily in a neighbourhood garden offer consolation and, perhaps, hope. These works are grounded in the belief that paying attention is itself a meaningful act.

INTER/ACTION EVENT

Nov. 20th, 12:00 – 2:00pm at the Gallery.

Please join Julia for an art workshop exploring our connection to and perception of place. The workshop begins with a nature walk in Queen’s Park, where participants practice using simple viewfinders with a pencil and paper to capture elements of the landscape that inspire them. Upon returning to the gallery, participants will be instructed in a variety of art techniques using watercolour, sumi ink, and oil pastels. Each person will use these multimedia techniques to create a piece inspired by their plein air drawings. This workshop is suitable for any experience level, and for ages 12 and up
