Vancouver events: Which Can Be Seen Only If You Should Stop – Part I, an exhibition of new paintings by Mira Song. March 21 – April 5 2014.

Song combines both natural and artificial landscapes to create imagined worlds coloured by childhood memories of place, both real and fantasized. Her work is informed by her memories as a child in Seoul, Korea, in which entire worlds could be constructed within everyday objects. For Song, a tea pot or a bonsai tree could take on a life of its own, providing an escape from the chaos of the city.

Drawing on a conceptual blueprint of an urban garden, a space both ‘natural’ and designed, Song constructs playful environments with disorienting scale. Elaborating on her MFA project, Things Which Can Be Seen Only If You Should Stop, this series presents microscopic views of imagined environments which function as the antidote to a restless mind.
