Helen Chung
Redreaming My Borrowed Dreams in Colors of Spring 2022,
When Everything Will Be Ok

Born in South Korea and immigrated to the U.S. in her childhood, Helen Chung is an interdisciplinary artist who works in painting, sculpture, and photography. While she’s received recognition for her live portraiture, which she considers her day job, much of her works’ media and forms vary depending on the subjects and projects; one can see however, her life-long interest in design viewed through a philosophical and psychological lens running through her works as a common thread.

This exhibition is from a series of paintings that she began in 2019 just before the pandemic, composed of figurative works expounding on notions of solitude, time, desire, longing; such ideas collectively shared and heightened by the pandemic. Some images melancholy, some humorous – imagined and executed semi-realistically – may portray the dreams Chung wants to have dreamt, or perhaps have dreamt and not remembered.

Chung earned her BA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and worked as an international shoe designer for two decades before returning to make art. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
