(September 7th, Guttenberg NJ) Guttenberg Arts Gallery is pleased to present “Those Who Left and Those Left Behind” an exhibition of new work by Lydia Lee. On view September 29th - November 12th, 2017.  Lee is an interdisciplinary artist who uses video, photography and performance to explore various subject and object matters.  The work included in “Those Who Left and Those Left Behind”  explore social issues that are rooted in Lee’s South Korean upbringing and question cultural identity and alter egos from an ontological point of view. 

Through various mediums Lee investigates her body and identity by exploring her own biography and personal history. Through this in-depth research, Lee has created a body of work that is an examination of both her distinctive identity and her interpersonal/societal relationship with others. This experimental approach to self-exploration has been a launching point for Lee’s artistic practice and allows for further analysis of herself and society.

Lydia Lee explains: “My work serves as the ring and pinky fingers rather than that of the thumb, index and middle fingers. The two fingers, that may seem far from productivity, reach beyond the technical and physical functions of fingers.”

With this perspective, Lee is capable of constantly seeking out endless questions while suggesting direction, not solutions, with her work.

Lydia Lee graduated from Kyung Hee University in Seoul, South Koera with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts in 2013.  She moved to the United States in 2014 and studied Multidisciplinary Art at Maryland Institute College of Art.  Lee is currently a Brooklyn-based artist /educator and member of the EFA Studio Program in New York City.

Braddock Park ARt Center

Exhibition: Oct. 14th - Nov. 30th, 2017

Under the provocative title “Lovers,” Guttenberg Arts is opening at Braddock Park Art Center in New Jersey this October 14th a major exhibition of recent works on paper by a rising star in the visual arts. Eduardo Sarmiento (b. 1980, Cuba) carries forward important traditions in the figurative art. The exhibition, curated by Joaquin Badajoz, who also wrote the essay in the catalog, is a celebration of lovers and deliberately allows the enjoyment of a master drawing in tender, shocking, hilarious ways.

Sarmiento has distinguished himself as a painter, graphic designer, and illustrator. His work breaks from convention, is provocative, poetic, and sheds light onto those darker zones where erotic feeling and love, pain and pleasure, lead us to self-discovery. His work has been exhibited internationally and is part of the permanent collection of several museums.

Braddock Park Art Center is located at:
River View Drive in James J. Braddock Park, North Bergen, NJ, 07093
