kwonny | Modern Day Saints

May 13, 2024 – August 20, 2024

Modern Day Saints is a collection of works made by kwonny between 2023-2024 and is an introspection of the relationship we carry with the idea of ourselves. Just as we encounter others, we encounter our own selves constantly through our inner narration of the world. Pieces like The Sun Still Watches with its two winged subjects caught between flight and fight offer no clear victor but a struggle in chrysalis. Her mixed media works live increasingly in an abstract figurative world, a reflection of a nomadic upbringing where she grew up in-between identities and communities, simultaneously seeking grounding and belonging and yet still inhabiting the out-of-place.
