“Recent Paintings”
Steven Zevitas Gallery, Boston
November 17, 2017-January 13, 2018

What the Gallery Says: “Moon’s practice is extraordinarily diaristic. Working on an intimate scale, she presents scenes populated with herself and a cast of characters—some old friends, some new. The locations, often indoors, are specific to her travels and moments in her day to day life. The complexity of her narratives is only matched by the detail with which she renders her subjects.”

Why It’s Worth a Look: The Korea-born, Art Center-trained painter’s works present a kind of personal jewel-box world of every-day experiences, rendered with a mix of honesty and intimacy.
