Textural Paintings and Sculpture Puzzles on Display at Houghton House

New York City artist Susan Daykin has used a grid pattern as a structural base and worked to make each rectangular division a unique composition that also relates to the other rectangles. The paintings on display are collages with varying textures, using scraps such as old wallpaper, oil cloth and plastic. The grid patterns are also made from found materials, including photocopies from the inside pattern of bank envelopes.

Kim Czong Ho's artKorean sculptor Kim Czong-Ho expresses his fundamental concerns in both abstract and figurative sculpture, and finds a metaphorical resonance in each style of art making. The pieces being shown are mostly bronze castings, but also include works in ceramic and plaster. The small-scale pieces are considered models for a larger work that may be built on a campus site later this spring. The sculpture has been created while Kim has been in working in residence since January.

Daykin's work is on display through Friday, April 22. A closing reception will be held from 7 until 9 p.m. that day at the gallery, preceded by a talk about her work at 4 p.m.

Kim will present slides of his work at 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 21, in Houghton House Room 212.
