Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present NEVER ENDS, a series of new paintings, a sculptural installation and a video by Pearl C. Hsiung. Never Ends reflects on the perpetual nature of creation and the paradoxical mechanisms of death and destruction that make it possible. Hsiung creates a surreal realm where humanity may be absent, yet where absurd traces still linger. In a protean universe, Hsiung envisions landscapes that may be created as eternity unfolds. This is Hsiung’s second solo exhibition at Steve Turner Contemporary.

Born in Taiwan in 1973, Pearl C. Hsiung received her BA at the University of California, Los Angeles (1997) and her MFA at Goldsmiths College, London (2004). Hsiung has had solo exhibitions at Max Wigram Gallery, London (2006) and Steve Turner Contemporary, Los Angeles (2007). Hsiung’s work has been featured in group exhibitions including Humor Us at the Los Angeles Municipal Arts Gallery (2007); 2006 California Biennial and Disorderly Conduct: Art in Tumultuous Times (2008) both at the Orange County Museum of Art; 2006 Busan Biennale, South Korea and Expander, Royal Academy of Fine Arts, London (2005).
