The AHL Foundation is please to present reVERBerations: Kyung Han Kim & Boonsun Lee, a two-person exhibition at the BBCN Bank. Like a verb that conveys an action or an occurrence or a state of being, both Kyung Han Kim and Boonsun Lee examine and record the daily life occurrences around them.
Kim explores miscommunication, preconceptions and prejudices that are formed and reformed through the media and translates these experiences into hand-sewn drawings on canvases. Lee, a fiber artist, investigates paradoxical ideas of birth and extinction, form and emptiness, the inside and the outside through abstract imagery. The two artists explore quite different but interconnected ideas that result in quiet meditative works that are sophisticated subtle undulations of color and texture that harmoniously echo one another.
This exhibition is presented as part of AHL Foundation’s Art in the Workplace Program which exhibits contemporary artwork within the work and business environment. BBCN Bank and AHL Foundation’s initiative to provide cultural enrichment to the local business community has received much applause from employees, customers, the local community, and art enthusiasts.
The program aims to create greater exposure for talented artists while fostering easier access and support for the arts among Korean-American business leaders.
AHL Foundation’s Art in the Workplace program is presented in collaboration with BBCN Bank and supported in part by Jason J. Kim Oral Design and through public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
