Alice in Darkland

SEONNA_HONG_Self_DefeatingI'm not the only one who likes Seonna Hong's recent paintings at Oliver Kamm/5BE Gallery. All of the works that feature her little girl protagonist were sold soon after the exhibit opened. Hong's dark allegories portray a youngster in an ominous world of black birds and shadowy forests. Like Alice in Wonderland, however, the venturer in these paintings seems completely confident in the realm of endless riddles and twisted logic. (Images via Oliver Kamm/5BE gallery)
