Echoes of Light in Galaxies

Echoes of Light in Galaxies

On July 10-13, 2014, the seventh edition of Art Hamptons will return to the spectacular 95-acre Sculpture Field of Nova’s Ark in Bridgehampton, fueled by a record-breaking attendance of 14,000+ enthusiastic art lovers. The rich tradition and expansive selection of art, A-list parties and celebrity-filled special events make Art Hamptons the primary summer source for acquiring new art in the Hamptons, such as the ceramic balloons by Nina Jun, represented by the Cynthia Corbett Gallery, London/ New York.

In reviewing her artistic concepts, the California based artist explains the meaning behind her Ceramic Balloon Series: “Helium balloons are symbols of happy occasions. But like moments of happiness, they do not last very long. By making permanent balloons, I would like to provide a medium in which our happiness could possibly stay with us forever.”

Echoes of Light in Galaxies
Nina Jun has been transforming mylar balloons into solid ceramics hung onto walls- giving space new heights of gravity. Through these projects, she investigates how and if we can change our conventional perceptions of even Newtonian physics. She also challenges the notion of convenience in disposable, instant, temporary and plastic objects by turning them into solid and permanent works of art, so she mentions:

“Making ceramic balloons allows me to travel from earth into the grander space of the universe. I have been recreating the stars and constellations in my ceramic balloon works with polka dots and 3D butterflies. What makes me more fascinated in looking at the telescopic images of galaxies and cosmos is the radiant echo of light emitting from the webs of stars. Each galaxy has its own characteristics by form and color. I try to capture galaxies' mysterious echoes of light on the facades of ceramic balloons in simplified geometric patterns.“
Echoes of Light in Galaxies
Nina Jun was born in Seoul, Korea and lives and works in the Los Angeles area in California. She received an MFA in Sculpture from California State University of Long Beach in 2001. Nina Jun participated at 12 solo shows and 15 international contemporary art fairs in the U.S., Canada, Korea and the UK. Her works have been published in Sculpture Magazine, Los Angeles Times, Korea Monthly Ceramics, Ceramics Review, SculpturesPacific Magazine, Home&Office Concept and Designboom Magazine for Architecture, Art & Design.
