[Curating Project] London We Live In: Sara E. Choi Solo Exhibition


To celebrate the opening of The Petit CorĂ©e, I presented a solo exhibition of recent works by Sara E. Choi.



A new slant on her approach to scriptures and drawings is very original. She draws the scenes of London where she lives and loves on the various materials.

For the ceramics, She applies techniques of Sgraffito and underglaze to stoneware clay before firing it three times at 1130- 1200°C. This demanding process allows vibrancy, uniqueness and charm to her ceramic reliefs.























"My recent ceramic work has been inspired by my fondness of architectural scenes and religious motifs. It is influenced by my belief in humanity - love, sharing, helping, comforting, loneliness, isolation, solitude and hope, etc. Both theme of substantial and abstract make me to explore a more creative and unique way of working with my ceramics."

Sarah. E. Choi December 2014

[Curatorial Project] Exhibition_Drawings


A stunning trio drawings exhibition has been presented by Theatre For All Visual Art in the Mayfair January 2014.
Featuring artists Korean artist Paul Lee, UK artist Rachel Pearcey and UK based German artist Hanna ten Doornkaat. Marks, repetition, obsession; three words which perfectly describe the works. But these artists’ work could not be more different.

[Curatorial Project] Exhibition_Drawn Together


I was honoured to be an external judge by KAOS committee at late of January. By accepting, I've carefully decided 25 works to put to the exhibition Drawn Together. Considering about a diversity by individual piece and a harmony for a whole show.


Curating
I've worked with two artists of KAOS and a staff from Riverside gallery for hanging.
Most portraits and features including Ruth Blackford's Stitching on fabric have been put to Room1 and we decided brilliant abstractive works from vibrant paintings to etching work of Buffy Kimm
