“BEDTIME STORIES” Hirah Park Solo Exhibition April 7, 2019 - April 20, 2019 Opening Reception: Sunday, April 7, 2018 4-6pm
Gallery Madison Park is pleased to present “Bedtime Stories” a solo exhibition of the work of Hirah Park. “Bedtime Stories” will run from April 7, 2019 through April 20, 2019 with an opening reception Sunday, April 7th from 4-6 p.m.
In this solo exhibition, “Bedtime Stories” Park presents her current body of paintings, a new series that draws from episodes that took place within the past year, specific instances where the flesh, soul, and spirit experienced violation, conflict and abuse. The primary agent that drove realized healing besides the self, yoga, and time was through the observance of a child named Sua aged two - young enough to be called untainted, yet ironically old enough to scheme and manipulate. In the work, Park imagines a filtered version of these jarring episodes told to the child before bedtime- an absurd wonder.
