BRONX, NY.- Tai Hwa Goh, the first artist in Wave Hill’s 2016 Sunroom Project Space, creates delicately layered installations from printed and cut paper that evoke biological forms and landscapes, reflecting on the external and internal worlds of the human body. At Wave Hill, Goh creates an immersive installation that explores the controlled environment of greenhouses, contemplating the intersection of organic and human-made realms. Imagining what would happen if human attempts to contain nature collapsed, Goh surrounds viewers in an alluring, yet unsettling overgrowth of both botanical imagery and architectural forms.

Goh’s installation pushes the boundaries of traditional printmaking from two-dimensional images on paper to three-dimensional sculptural installations that transform space. Starting with handdrawn illustrations of organic shapes and patterns, she scans and digitally alters the images, and then screen-prints them onto waxed mulberry paper. Goh, cuts, folds, layers and forms this printed paper into three-dimensional objects that engage architectural space. Seeing the natural world and the human body as inextricably connected, Goh includes tubes, pipes and orbs that spew forth flowing strips of paper, suggesting cycles of the body, industrial machinery and natural phenomena, as well as the unending processes of growth and decay.

Goh earned a BFA and MFA from Seoul National University, and an MFA from the University of Maryland. She has had solo exhibitions at William Paterson University, Wayne, NJ; Gallery Aferro, Newark, NJ; Gallery at Flashpoint, Washington, DC; and the Arlington Arts Center, Arlington, VA, among others. She has also shown major installations at Snug Harbor Cultural Center, Staten Island, NY; A.I.R. Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; Carriage House, Islip Museum, East Islip, NY; and International Print Center New York, New York, NY. She is currently in the studio program at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, New York, NY, and has previously participated in residencies at Lower East Side Printshop, New York, NY; the NARS Foundation, Brooklyn, NY; Emerge 11 at Aljira Center for Contemporary Art, Newark, NJ; and Evergreen Museum and Library Residency at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, among others.

Organized by Curator of Visual Arts Gabriel de Guzman, the Sunroom Project Space provides an opportunity for New York-area emerging artists to develop a special project or site-specific work to exhibit in a solo show. The artists participating in the 2016 season are, consecutively, Tai Hwa Goh, Dark Matters, Amie Cunat, Joiri Minaya, Doreen Garner, Ariel Jackson and Denise Treizman.
