Opening at HPU Art Gallery Moving In Place by Christine Koroki and Satomi Suyama

A paired exhibition of works titled Moving In Place, by Christine Koroki and Satomi Suyama, will open with a reception from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the HPU Art Gallery on Sunday, November 23, 2014.  The exhibit will run until Friday, January 16, 2015.

The exhibition incorporates the drawings and paintings of Christine Koroki and Satomi Suyama produced in the past two years.  The HPU Gallery juxtaposes the two artistic positions as the various facets and energies can be compared and bounced or reflected from one wall to the next.  What makes things things?  Is it the identity of the subject itself, its parts, the space that surrounds them, or its relationship to something else that is essential?  Viewed side by side, one is presented with a visual harmony as both artists question and concern themselves with movement, stillness, relationships and transformation..
