Summer Show June 30 – August 20, 2016

June 30, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - August 20, 2016 @ 6:00 PM

C. Grimaldis Gallery is pleased to present a summer group show of new works by Alfonso Fernandez (MICA ’16), Julia Garcia (MICA ’16), Minku Kim (MICA ’13) and Jennie Jieun Lee. This exhibition features paintings and ceramic sculpture which showcase the artist’s decisive hand, the classical form and its deconstruction. These experimental compositions are charged with a tension between formal sensibility and visceral emotion, in which moments of figuration are occluded by darkness, color, glazes, pours, drips and mark-makings.

Alfonso Fernandez (b. 1983, Mexico City) received an MFA from the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. His work has been exhibited throughout the US, including recent exhibitions at the Katzen Art Center, American University, Washington DC and Circa Gallery, Minneapolis. The artist lives and works in Baltimore.

Julia Garcia (b. 1992, Pompano Beach) received an MFA from the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo shows in New York, Baltimore, and Rome, including Ballroom Gallery, Baltimore; Bleecker St Arts Club, New York; The Hole, New York; Blue Mountain Gallery, New York; and Libreria Cascianelli, Rome. Julia lives and works in Beijing.

Minku Kim (b. 1989, Seoul) has shown paintings, drawings and sculpture internationally at galleries including The Courtroom, Brooklyn; All Things Project, New York; BrailleBerlin, Berlin; and Current Space, Baltimore. He is a 2017 MFA candidate in Sculpture at The New York Studio School. Minku immigrated to New York in 2005, where he currently lives and works.

Jennie Jieun Lee (b. 1973, Seoul) has exhibited throughout the US and internationally at galleries such as Marlborough Chelsea, New York (forthcoming); Levy Deval, Brussels; Eleven Rivington, New York; Martos Gallery, New York; Cooper Cole, Toronto; and Galerie Lefebvre et Fils, Paris. Jennie lives and works in Brooklyn.
