Fair Director’s Pick for the Week of October 3

Jay Chung

Jay Chung is a Korean artist, based in Dallas, whose figurative paintings explore the complex interplay of physical realities and interior states of being. In his latest body of work, he takes as his subject the human figure, and eschewing conventional representation, seeks to present an “alternative” which expresses “our conscious and unconscious experience of being in the world.” What appears on the canvas is often a roiling blur of feeling-made-manifest—set on a ground or suspended in space—representing dreamlike states and the imagined contents of our “psychological, societal, and imaginative” lives.” Nicole Garton

As Nicole forms her recommendations, she is considering key aspects of an artist’s work that demand special recognition—whether it be a fully articulated style that is unique and arresting, a mastery of technical skill that reveals an uncommon talent, or a strong underpinning of ideas that is fresh and provocative. It is our hope this this series will help you discover an artist whose works you really love.
