ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens

Reflecting the heroic spirit of Teddy Roosevelt’s provocative “Man in the Arena” speech, ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens creates captivating spaces that celebrate the work of over one hundred emerging to internationally renowned artists who fearlessly express authenticity and integrity their work.

“It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”
- Theodore Roosevelt

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens’ uniquely beautiful art and design venues feature contemporary art and sculpture, as well as finely-edited collections of furnishings, objects and curiosities dating from the 18th century to the present.




Sound and Vision

MIRANG WONNE
BURNISH
SEPTEMBER 1-30, 2019

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens invites you to celebrate a new collection of paintings by Mirang Wonne. For the last three decades, Mirang Wonne has used unexpected mediums to create natural forms. She primarily use industrial materials that amplify an organic intensity of abstract forms and creates a range of optical aspects. In her recent screen work, Wonne "draws" on fine stainless-steel mesh with a blowtorch. By transforming a material more associated with industry than with art, Wonne's work becomes unexpectedly subtle and intimate, with the visual allure of gemstones and the transcendent forms of nature. Wonne interprets natural forms in unexpected mediums.

After receiving her MFA from Seoul National University, Wonne was awarded a French Government Scholarship for the Arts. She continued her studies at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Deco in Paris and earned her PHD from Sorbonne. Returning to her native Korea, she then taught at Seoul National University. Her work has been exhibited at museums in France and the U.S. such as the Grand Palais, MOMA in Paris, Villa Montalvo, and the Pacific Heritage Museum in San Francisco. Wonne interprets natural forms in unexpected mediums. She uses primarily synthetic materials that paradoxically amplify the organic intensity of those forms, capitalzing on their physical and optical peculiarities.

Join ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens and Mirang Wonne to celebrate her new showcase, Burnish.
