Like the cities they depict, these mixed media artworks are layered, built and rebuilt with deconstructed bits and pieces.
Heidi Nam’s “Netted: Morphological State of Our Urban Space” is a meditation on the rapid pace of change in cities. It started with a trip to Korea, where Nam found her hometown changed: familiar but unfamiliar at the same time. Maps, nature, patterns, and grids all spilled over into her artwork.
The pieces you see in “Netted” started life as prints, drawings, and paintings. Those were fragmented and repurposed in these collages in layers you can see.
“Netted: Morphological State of Our Urban Space” is on view through Sunday, April 2, 2017.
