Friday January 14, 6-8:30pm
923 F St. NW

Caos on F, presents new work by artist Chul Beom Park with a reception on Friday, the 14th of January. Featuring mixed media constructions and two installation studies for large public work proposals, these complex collage pieces use a variety of techniques to reflect on communication and culture through the prism of language, media, and selective history.

Chul Beom Park examines the viewable evidence, the hidden sociological influences of cultural identity, and both the literal and the figurative projection of media manipulation in our lives in this installation of works at Caos on F. Juxtaposing the politics and patriotism reflected in monuments to great events and ideas with the human conflicts and fragility shrouded beneath these resilient and timeless symbols, Chul distills many conflicting emotions into subtle, elegant creations, both beautiful in their simplicity and brimming with a myriad of finely crafted details. Park has created three-dimensional mixed media pieces which combine traditional oil painting, printmaking, bookmaking and collage with innovative visual projections. He arranges and combines intriguing images with a larger narrative that only comes together when all the pieces that make up the puzzle are revealed.”
