Lot Essay

Born in Incheon, Korea in 1972, Jin Meyerson was soon adopted into a Jewish-Swedish family from rural Minnesota. He spent his early, formative years in the American Midwest before pursuing his education in fine arts, receiving his BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 1995, and his MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1997.

With the speed and pace of today's world of images and stories, our experiences are increasingly temporary, fleeting and almost entirely indiscernible. Meyerson states, “And yet, through the cacophony, universal forms and stories persist. Like singular pure notes that ring true; despite the symphonic blunderbuss of noise, when we listen, look closely and endure a mono-myth emerges. Compounding, any sense of comprehension is the accumulation of history.

Every minute in the present is the oldest in the record of humanity. We live in a time where the reorganization of our perceptions of history is constantly being updated by jostling, competing cultures, opinions and agendas. To this degree, the evolution of our perceptions and the ability to digest simultaneous multiple images and meanings have now evolved to where we can view several distinctive sources without losing sight of the conceptual whole."

Featured here, Evolution of Perception (Lot 186) is essentially an exercise and celebration of this newly evolved ability of global human perception. Jin Meyerson started his career in the late 90's in NYC with his first solo in 2003 with LFL Gallery in New York
City. He moved to Paris in 2006, where he lived and worked for the next four years, until he was invited by the National Museum of Contemporary Art Korea to attend their residency in Changdong, Seoul, and has lived in various cities in Asia since 2010.

Jin Meyerson's work can be found in numerous public and private collections, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; The Saatchi Collection, London and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) Seoul.
