Patrick Painter Inc. is currently presenting Vitrines, an exhibition featuring the work of Won Ju Lim through April 20.
This exhibition features a series of eight sculptures, which explore the ephemeral qualities of landscape, memory, and time.
These works are a part of Lim’s “Broken Landscape” series, which explores the unattainable nature of remembering the fleeting aspects of landscape.
Lim intends to visually represent the body’s relationship to space, as well as the mind’s fragmentation of memory and time.
In “A Piece of Highland Park,” small model homes rest upon a hillside embedded with lush green foliage housed in yellow Plexiglas.
The hillside then dissolves into plaster ruins that become brightly colored landslides. Both synthetic and natural elements combine to blur the lines between what is real and what is imagined to form one figurative work.
This exhibition marks Won Ju Lim’s sixth solo exhibition with the gallery, which is located at 2525 Michigan Avenue, Unit B2 (Bergamot Station), Santa Monica.
