CES Gallery in Los Angeles presents a solo exhibition of minimalist perfection by Zin Helena Song.

Zin Helena Song’s visually complex sculptural paintings are rooted in both Western and Asian art influences melded with modern societal concepts of order and multiplicity. Her process incorporates hard-edge abstract paintings on top of meticulously hand-fabricated three dimensional geometric forms that are mounted to the wall. Each piece is painted with precision, using a subdued and boldly contrasting color palate to accentuate the lines and angles of the shapes. Ultimately the pieces push the boundaries of paintings into the architectural realm by activating space. The series titled Polygon in Space feature sharp edges that imply movement, while the Origami series hover as if hollow and weightless despite the strong and dominating, protruding structure.

Song moved from Seoul to New York in 2009. She completed her MFA at Long Island University Post in 2014. She received the O’Malley Scholarship in 2013 and the Eleanor Lockwood Memorial Award in Sculpture (2014). Her work has been acknowledged in numerous publications including MOMA PS1 Studio Visit, The Jealous Curator and The Brooklyn Rail.
