Jason Stopa in Seoul

In Seoul, Jason Stopa will present 'Glass Arcadia,' a solo exhibition of paintings with Thomas Park – opening Saturday, May 4, 2024 with a reception for the artist at 5:00 pm (GMT+9) .

 

There will be an artist talk, on the topic of Utopianism in the History of Art, at the gallery. 'Glass Arcadia,' the first solo exhibition of New York-based artist Jason Stopa with Thomas Park, and in Seoul, will be on view through June 20, 2024.

 

"Stopa began these works in 2023 in Cassis, France, while in residency at the BAU Institute. He traveled and saw Matisse's work in The Rosary Chapel in Vence. The floral stained glass windows in the chapel in bright yellow, green, and blue, had a profound impact on him. Stopa's brightly colored planes may channel Matisse's pursuit of balance, purity, and serenity. Even if it is fragile, we might be able to glimpse the Arcadia the old master dreamed of. And we could ask ourselves this question: Can art convince us to envision a better world?" --Mimi Park
