Fleurs de Lumiere at Auberge
Our newest private dining space, La Galerie, features a rotating art collection from celebrated artists. The latest artist to grace the walls of La Galerie is Mirang Wonne. Her ‘Fleurs de Lumiere’ art is coming from The Contemporary Art Museum in Seoul, Korea. Wonne’s work is very modern and contemporary and looks incredible in our space. Her work is about the visual interpretation about the fragility of life.
Wonne is a prolific artist who uses innovative media and techniques. Her work is done on a combination of paper and stainless steel screens. She uses charcoal, water color and a torch to create her masterpieces:
“I have used a torch to burn the images of once beautiful petals onto fine steel mesh. Through the faint bluish and brownish tint of those melted metals, I tried to recapture what was once vivid sunshine. Among these burnt petals, perhaps one will find the hidden inner struggles and complexities of an artist.” ~ Mirang Wonne
After receiving her MFA from Seoul National University, Wonne was awarded a French Government Scholarship for the Arts. She continued her studies at the Ecole Nationale SupÃ©rieure des Arts Deco in Paris and earned her Ph. D. from Sorbonne. Returning to her native Korea, she then taught at Seoul National University. Her work has been exhibited at museums in France and the U.S. such as (the) Grand Palais, MOMA in Paris, Villa Montalvo, and Pacific Heritage Museum in San Francisco.
