VISCERAL: A JOINT EXHIBITION BY RACHEL KIM & CLARE NGUYEN at UC San Diego, March 4-7, 2014

Dates: March 4 – 7, 2014

Location: Mandeville Annex Gallery, UC San Diego
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Friday, 12:00 – 5:00pm

Undergraduate studio honors students Rachel Kim and Claire Nguyen present a joint exhibition of their work. Kim is a painter who’s pieces have figurative and abstract elements. “I would like to challenge myself to create fictional characters and environments based on my own intuitive ink drawings and watercolor paintings,” said Kim in a conversation with Nguyen. In turn, Nguyen speaks to her work as a contrast between the macabre and ethereal, “I like drawing things that are dark and creepy, but I also love drawing things that are the complete opposite – ethereal and light!”

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Rachel Kim starts her process by creating viscerally abstracted ink paintings. They are then transformed into a collection of compelling images of various animals and creatures.

Clare Nguyen has always been fascinated with the occult. Her desire to experiment with the dark and eerie has led her to take subjects seen as “light” and “happy” in a more sinister direction.
