‘Blending Boundaries’ By Suyun Son

 Is Suyun Son’s art abstract expressionism or Korean calligraphy? Son wants us to know it’s both. “As a Korean American, I do not see my two identities as strict and separate or competing against each other. My experience is that my identities are fluid and borderless, a both/and experience,” she said. “In painting, … I invite viewers to experience the confusion of categories as a way towards clarity of hybridity of all things.” The closing reception is Wednesday, March 8, from 6-8 p.m. with an artist talk at 7 p.m.
