Tai Hwa Goh had to make her own flowers and plants when she was a kid.
The artist, whose work is premiering tonight with a virtual reception at the Torpedo Factory Art Center’s Target Gallery, was raised in South Korea in an apartment complex without plants, and Goh’s latest work is meant to express the dynamic existing between humanity living within the natural world.
“I didn’t have a garden as a child, and that’s very common in Korea,” Goh told ALXnow. “I want people to understand the relationship between organic growth and human desire. There is a tension, and people like to look at the bright side of my work, but it has a dark side, which is why I introduced industrial qualities, like concrete and plastic.”
Goh’s medium is the printmaking and paper installation of handmade flowers. She uses printed and cut wax paper, and her work was chosen from more than 150 artists in a national search.
The virtual reception is available via facebook.com/targetgallery on Friday (July 10) at 7 p.m., and Goh will provide audiences with a closer look at her work. The show runs until July 26.
Join us tonight for the livestream premiere of our virtual exhibition tour for Tai Hwa Goh and a thoughtful discussion…
