March 20th - 24th, 2023
RECEPTION: Thursday, March 23rd 2023, 5 - 8pm
The Fine Arts Department of Ringling College of Art + Design is pleased to present You and I Didn’t Live the Same Nature featuring the work of Ping Ho, Pretty Ram, Chaewook Lim.
Human nature and environmental nature are intertwined. Our relationship to nature defines our connection to the physical world, and furnishes an extraordinary healing ability providing calmness and destress. Referencing each artists’ connection to the theme of nature, the artwork of You and I Didn’t Live the Same Nature asks viewers to question their own relationship to the living world.
Referencing the Taiwanese landscape, Ping Ho's mixed-media sculpture and time-based video playfully evoke a peaceful, narratively-driven past memories of home. Experimental and challenging, Chaewook Lim's media art and sculpture explore how color affects our psychology, leading to psychological associations and symbolism. Combining natural elements and mythological iconography, Pretty Ram's multi-layered sculptures and video explores the complexity of nature and how we can get carried away by it.
