Places– of Charm

L.A. Times art critic Christopher Knight reports that paintings from Song Kun, known for her “visions through the fog” will be on display this month of October at Walter Maciel Gallery, 2642 S. La Cienega Blvd in Culver City.  Below, Christopher Knight describes the pure white, sleek deer standing in a mountainous landscape, painted in gray, white, and sepia tones.  “Song Kun creates a fuzzy, blissed-out, sun-bleached look.”   At the Walter Maciel Gallery Song is showing twenty oil paintings made since 2008.

    Kathleen, so often deer stand exactly like that. They’re highly alert prey animals but look like statues. Artist Song Kun captured this perfectly.
