Meeson Pae (b. Indianapolis, IN) is a new Los Angeles-based discovery for the gallery; her multidisciplinary approach evokes the body and its relationship to technology. Drawn to the visceral, Pae explores interiors of the body as sensual architecture and machine, where fleshy soft bits and bodily fluids undulate and transform into otherness. The machine/body distinction is complicated further through her process. With the assistance of computer generated systems, Pae renders her compositions in three dimensions before painting them on canvas. Her imagery oscillates between representation and abstraction, micro and macro, biological and mechanical. Pae’s fluid gestures and undulating forms are used to create entangled, mysterious, asymmetric compositions where fleshy folds, dripping refractions of bodily fluids, and mechanical machine components create relationships and function symbiotically.
