Shyun Song executes her minimalist oil paintings around pairs of concepts in the titles of her works. Prometheus and Narcissus draw from their respective Greek mythology, one god, one human; one selfless and one literally self-absorbed. Narcissus is a scene of reflection where the mismatched top half gazes at itself as whole in the lower register.
Born in South Korea / Works in NY
Shyun's minimalism does the maximum in bringing out the intensity of shapes and colors. What seem like stable forms - rectangles, tubes, and lines - never sit quietly on the ground. Shyun tips these shapes on their corner, drops them over a shadow, and slices just a little of their edges like soft cheese, capturing the brief moment where the stability of geometry meets the imagination of our eyes.You'll love Shyun if: you've spent an entire Sunday morning in front of a Barnett Newman in MoMA
