NEON LOVE

DAN LAM  |  MERYL PATAKY  |  ERIK MARK SANDBERG  |  KRISTEN LIU-WONG

Exhibition Dates: June 2 – 24, 2017
 

This June, Stephanie Chefas Projects presents NEON LOVE, a four person exhibit honoring the unmistakable allure of electric hues. Like a moth to the flame, the viewer will be drawn into a visual journey via color and light by way of sculpture, painting, photography, and mixed media assemblages. Artists Dan Lam, Meryl Pataky, Erik Mark Sandberg, and Kristen Liu Wong each offer a distinct aesthetic unified by vibrant color. 

The polymorphous, multi-textural qualities of Dan Lam's brightly colored sculptures both confuses and delights the viewer, each work begging to be touched. Meryl Pataky continues her exploration of abstract neon and concepts of universal connectedness. Erik Mark Sandberg brings his hairy, neon-colored subjects to life via photography, each image a metaphor for the perversion and exploitation inherent to our consumer culture. Kristen Liu Wong's women struggle with power and sexuality within slightly sinister, always tight framework of candy colors and striking patterns. 

The opening reception for NEON LOVE will be held at Stephanie Chefas Projects on Friday, June 2nd from 7-10pm. Stephanie Chefas Projects is located in Portland, Oregon at 305 SE 3rd Avenue on the second floor of the Urban Row building. The exhibition will be on view through June 24th, 2017 and is free and open to the public.
