Rock, Paper, Scissors: A Collection of Artwork by Jee Park and Clara Varas

We are pleased to present a collection of recent works by Miami based contemporary artists Jee Park and Clara Varas. Park and Varas examine painting combined with works that are hybrid in nature and straddle the fence between drawing, collage, assemblage, sculpture, and installation. Through the use of unconventional materials and fresh approaches to mark making, this survey of contemporary work seeks to further discredit the cliched notion that painting is dead–rather, it is a constantly evolving medium.
