Darkroom

July 1, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - July 17, 2016 @ 5:00 PM

(In conjunction with Alloverstreet)

Not driven by impulse, painter Jinie Park and photographer Tao Ho take the world in slowly and with a sensitive touch. In order to get deeper into their own mind they retreat to a room; a container for thoughts. Experiences flow from their mind onto the paper, the canvas, film negative to positive image. Park and Ho’s work pertains to light, memory, and weight.

“My personal poetry is a failure.
I do not want to be a person.
I want to be unbearable.
Lover to lover, the greenness of love.”
-Anne Carson

Ho looks down into the abyss, while Park looks up from it.
