a solo exhibition by Stella Im Hultberg
On view: August 31st - September 23rd, 2017

Spoke SF is pleased to present Mago, a solo exhibition featuring new work by Portland- based painter and illustrator Stella Im Hultberg. The artist’s second solo exhibition with Spoke includes paintings and drawings exploring her Korean heritage and traditional folk stories.

Inspired by Korean myths and the artist’s experiences with motherhood, Hultberg has created an ethereal body of new work. According to Korean mythology Mago is the mother of mothers and the root of creation. Her daughters, the goddesses So-hee and Gung-hee birthed humanity. The artist explores her changing role both as daughter and mother, interweaving personal icons like the peony, representational of her mother, with her own interpretation of folklore.

"Mago" is on view from August 31st to September 23rd at our gallery in San Francisco.
