InyoungUNCONSCIOUS NATURE is among the intricate drawings by artist Inyoung Seoung, on display beginning with a Friday evening reception at the Monmouth Museum.  

Her intricate drawings strive for the cosmic revelations that often occur in a seemingly insignificant detail of a big world; in the manner of “branches, reaching to get sources for photosynthesis.” Removing all background and even all traces of color from her ink creations, South Korean-born Inyoung Seoung brings the “endless exclusive patterns” of the natural world into stark, brilliant relief — linking a tree’s ordered chaos with the human individual’s striving for status and meaning.

A resident of the United States since 1997 — and a New Jerseyan for the past five years — the artist brings a display of her pen-on-canvas specialties to one of the area’s best showcases for Garden State art and artists, the Monmouth Museum. The gallery on the Lincroft campus of Brookdale Community College welcomes Seoung on Friday evening, August 15, for a reception that opens her biggest solo show in the region to date.
