"When you call my name quietly" is a series of landscape drawings rendered in gouache, colored pencil, and graphite on paper, simultaneously accurate and surreal. Soomin Jung is a daughter of a retired ROK army colonel. Moving, traveling, transferring to new schools, adopting to the new landscapes and atmospheres in various regions and making new friends who were vastly different than from the previous places were a big part of her youth, and her family always had exceptionally strong bond through the changes.

Naturally, Jung became interested in one’s perception of the world around us, the myriad influences that can distort the perception, and the landscapes that withstand the changes through time. The conjunctions of the distortions such as the reflection of a mountain in a body of water, mirroring mountain valleys, changing lights in nature, and the sparkly things in the sky that make your heart sink such as snow, stars and fireflies are the vessels to carry my thoughts beyond words. Each of the drawings in this exhibition are titled from the lines of a message Jung wrote to her children.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until May 1.
