The Closet Box Micro-Gallery/Wonder Emporium announces the opening of  C.H.  JoAnn Park:  Saving It For Later/Making It Better, a new exhibition of sculpture and installation.  Artist reception is Saturday, September  18, 2010, from 7:30PM – 9:30PM

Closet romantic, reluctant pragmatist, and purveyor of the bittersweet, Park’s latest offering is an installation chronicling the after-lives of the battered, broken, and discarded.  Items ranging from chipped tchotchkes to broken baubles are lovingly assembled and together  line the shelves of The Closet Box.  While some items are preserved in hopes of seeing a time for repair, restoration, or simple use, other items, beyond the hope of repair, become gilded specimens.  However, more than a mere exercise in bedazzling at will, the work becomes a greater metaphor for the need to cling to the past and asks, “How much is too much?” and “When will it be safe to let go?”  Park draws a fine line between tenacity and obsession through layers of humor, gold-leaf and glitter, and lots of stuff.

C.H.  JoAnn Park:  Saving It For Later/Making It Better is on view September 18, 2010 through October 21, 2010 in The Closet Box of Box13 ArtSpace at 6700 Harrisburg Boulevard, Houston, Texas 77011
