The Able Fine Art Gallery in Chelsea will soon feature a solo exhibition of works by ChungMe Choung in a show titled Generation. For this show, Choung unveils a series of clay sculptures that symbolize nature and its beauty, while also conveying the energy found within art and nature. She has also noted that the creation of sculptures “pay homage to the ground” as she has described the meaning of the soil as the “foundation of our existence.” The sculptures have abstract, curvy shapes derived from the flexible clay, that appear to be of plants, sea creatures, and other mammals with each shape containing colors of black, beige, and white, and are embedded with deep, tiny circles, seemingly created through fingerprints. At The Able Fine Art Gallery, 511 W. 25th St. #607, through Sept. 17. The gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, Sept. 5th from 6-8 p.m.
