Off the Clock: Wendy Park @ Various Small Fires, Los Angeles

Various Small Fires (VSF) is pleased to present OFF THE CLOCK, a solo exhibition of new work by Wendy Park at the gallery’s Los Angeles location. The exhibition brings together ten paintings and debuts an augmented reality experience (AR) that investigates and reconstructs Park’s childhood memories of growing up as the daughter of Korean immigrants in Greater Los Angeles during the 1980s-90s. Her works pay homage to her late father, mother, and Southern California’s indoor commerce culture. The new works feature humble objects that highlight her parent’s fleeting moments of leisure as working-class vendors.
