Haeri Yoo: Pain Patch

Thomas Erben Gallery
New York
Now through December 6


Blurring the boundary between abstraction and representation, Brooklyn-based, Korean-born painter Haeri Yoo hits the mark with Pain Patch, her first solo show in the US. Painting with frenzied, expressive brushwork and a lively palette, Yoo slices and dices figures and furniture with her brush, until erotically charged, semi-abstract mounds are all that remain. Shore suggests the washed-up remains of a dreadful shipwreck, with severed heads and torsos littering the beach, while Chin Table proposes a dissected room where the inhabitants are fragmented in their surroundings. Gestures and body parts come alive on the canvas and bond together in a moving image of life.

-Paul Laster
