BY: Karon Warren
In an exhibit opening Nov. 9, Korean artist Jiha Moon brings her combination of gestural paintings, mixed media, ceramic sculpture and installation to the Alan Avery Art Company for a two-month show titled “Where Serpents Change Their Skin.” Moon draws upon numerous factors for her work, ranging from Korean temple paintings and folk art, colors and designs found in pop culture, and even Internet emoticons and product labels from around the world. “Jiha Moon’s work is colorful, intricate and thought-provoking, spanning multiple mediums from painting to sculptural ceramic and installation,” says gallery president Alan K. Avery. “Viewing her work is like immersing yourself into the middle of a festival of pageantry. Her work combines multicultural traditional references with Western pop culture iconography, creating a dialogue that is both familiar and strange at the same time.”
