Ting Ying Han lives and works in Los Angeles. Raised in Taiwan and having left home at a young age, her work relates to the experience of migration and imagined possibilities of a place. She uses installation, sculpture, and video to create a space for narratives of memory and absence. Ting received her MFA from California Institution of the Arts in 2013 and has participated in residencies at OX-Bow, Vermont Studio Center, and Sculpture Space. Her works have been exhibited in New York, Chicago and in Los Angeles, and recognized in publications such as Nonoplacess Art in a Post-Urban Landscape.
Emily Joyce has been investigating mathematics and it’s resonance in the natural world as well as art history through pattern based and rhythmic abstraction. Her paintings often have a spark humor and playfulness because she adds a purposefully awkward gesture or anomaly to the composition that humanizes the rigorous geometry that is the foundation of her work. Joyce has been included in exhibitions and projects in the United States and in Europe at venues including, Human Resources, Machine Project, Hauser and Wirth, Los Angeles, The Berkeley Museum, The Tang Teaching Museum, the Palais de Tokyo, and Inman Gallery, Houston. She is currently working on co-curating (with Elissa Auther) “Aftereffect: O’Keeffe and Contemporary Painting” an exhibition that examines the influence of the greatest American Modernist on the work of ten contemporary abstract artists.
Kim Ye (b. 1984, Beijing, China) is a Los Angeles-based interdisciplinary artist whose work incorporates social practice, installation, video, performance, sculpture, and the written word. She received her MFA from UCLA (2012) and her BA from Pomona College (2007). Her work traces the circulation of power by exploring concepts of labor, intimacy, and the exchange between an artist and their audience. Currently she is the groundkeeper for LSB watering hole.
