Introduction

Opera Gallery New York is proud to present an exhibition of paintings by Korean artist Chae Sung-Pil.

For this exhibition, the artist presents ‘The History of Blue’. The color blue was used throughout the history of mankind – from antiquity to present – to represent certain cultural meanings. Through his reflection on the color and its historical and cultural contexts he has built a ‘new world of blue’ - an ideal that lives beyond borders or boundaries. Much like his previous project - ‘Land of Anonymity’ - Chae creates a world that is anchored in history but is simultaneously timeless and universal.

In these 15 new works exhibited in Opera Gallery New York, the artist provides each viewer with an opportunity to look back on their own connotations and memories of blue. Furthermore, the viewers will be given an experience of coming close to the world of origin pursued in ‘Land of Anonymity’ and revisited in this new world of blue.
