From Dusk Till Dawn: David Heo @ Hashimoto Contemporary, SF
Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present From Dusk Till Dawn a solo exhibition by Chicago-based artist David Heo. Heo's new body of work showcases a range of paintings and collages that draw influence from two personal wells of information; his southern upbringing in the United States and his first generation Korean-American heritage.
The artist heavily reflects on the emotional pendulum of the last few years, deftly attuned to the effects of forced personal and cultural introspection. From Dusk Till Dawn presents these vulnerable content-laden moments as the subject matter. Through these vulnerabilities, he exposes the dynamics between the depicted moments and their unmasked tensions.
For this exhibition, Heo expands from his early 2020 body of work and excavates symbology inspired from worldly mythos, Korean folklore, and personal experiences. Based on the rhythms of aporia, the artist presents these new understandings and reflections intertwined with vibrant colors, hard-painted edges and a mixed dialogue between mediums. The color palette and idiosyncratic symbols contrast themselves with gentle tension that exists within our contemporary times.
From Dusk Till Dawn will be on view May 7th - 28th with an opening reception on Saturday, May 7th from 4pm-7pm, no appointment necessary.
