Bea Ying Projects presents Aki Neumann: Paradise
Bea Ying Projects will present Paradise, an exhibition of works by Aki Neumann. Neumann’s first solo exhibition will feature a series of eight paintings with additional sculptures and animation, all of which were created during her past year spent in Houston, TX.
Neumann’s paintings on paper tell a narrative of idyllism and suspicion through stark forms and muted tones. Surreal landscapes and interiors ranging from white to tan to black, present a suspended and floating world. Vases, snakes, mirrors, and other motifs of Orientalism reoccur within her work, underscoring the dangerous relationship between the observer and the observed in illusions of paradise.
