Annette Hur in "Rough Growth" at Helen J Gallery, Los Angeles

December 9, 2022 - January 28, 2023
In this two-person exhibition, Annette Hur and Min Baek's paintings are sharpened like instincts. Gestating in the estuaries of abstraction and biology, they collect stains, washes, streaks, and splinters – visceral responses to shared and private pressures. Baek’s swarms of granular marks feud and cooperate, suspended in vaporous climates, while in Hur’s dense undergrowths tissue feverishly dissolves and reconstitutes into time-lapses of life cycles.
