In her paintings of private interiors, fragmented figures, and abstracted flowers, Christie Yuri Noh makes the invisible, unspoken aspects of the human subconscious visible. Noh’s own inner life plays a prominent role in the creation of her paintings. Instead of meticulously planning each image in advance, she allows the process of painting itself to inspire the marks she makes on the canvas. The results are strange, beautiful, and otherworldly.
Check out her solo exhibit, Things Whose Purpose Is Slowness, at the WAL Public Market from May 6 – May 31, 2016. The opening reception is May 6th from 6 – 9 PM. The WAL Public Market is located at 1104 R St. See more of Christie Noh’s art here.
