Gigi Chung is a San Francisco-based fine-art photographer mainly working in medium-format digital photography. She focuses on architectural abstracts with a minimalistic approach. While drawing her inspirations from her love of music, art, and dance, she finds the juxtaposition of light, shadow, and lines in architecture fascinating.
Inspired by Deconstructivism in architecture, Gigi Chung's works explore the geometric juxtaposition of various building edifices. These surfaces contain unifying patterns and elements which create pulsating visual rhythms, facilitate eye movements within the image.
Depart from existing reality, these monochromatic architectural abstracts create fragmented and asymmetric compositions independent of time and space. The intricate studies of lines and forms invite viewers to experience the unique spatial relationship of a built environment.
Chung's artwork has been exhibited in multiple galleries and museums in Athens, Chania, Cormons, Glasgow, Greensville Portland, Minneapolis, Taipei, Trieste, Tokyo, San Francisco, and Vermont. Her solo exhibition "Emergence" debuted at Hasselblad Japan Tokyo Store Gallery in February 2019. She is currently working on her Kyotographie KG Plus curated solo exhibition at Gallery Tajiro Gion Kyoto in September 2020.
