The Garden of Eden

Hyangmok Baik

833 East 3rd Street
Los Angeles CA 90013

Open: Tuesday – Sunday 11 – 6

Over the Influence is excited to present South Korean artist Hyangmok Baik’s debut show The Garden of Eden with the Los Angeles gallery.  The new series of artworks feature imagined scenes painted by the artist, set within this Terrestrial Paradise.

Often, The Garden of Eden is a utopia and the hometown for the first generation of the human race. The world is suffering from the pandemic. People are hurting each other because of their skin color. Pure hate and violence are prevalent because of different backgrounds and value standards. Hyangmok’s version of Paradise is one where viewers can escape to a more pastoral and peaceful time- Essentially a utopia of their own personal manifestation within the framework and inspiration of their own minds.
