The exhibition, Venturing Sanity: Furthest Reach of Reason, features artworks that invite viewers into a realm of psychological transcendence through breaking up the logical set of rules of geometry and common understanding of space. The showcased artworks are expressed in geometrical abstraction with a subtle hint of realism to engage viewers to draw connection from their lives to abstracted shapes and colors of the works. The artworks are created during last two years since Paik moved to Arizona from New Jersey.

Jacob Paik is an artist who specializes in creating geometrical abstract painting on structurally shaped canvas. His experience as an only child in the fast-developing and highly competitive country, South Korea, in the 90’s where social norms and expectations were prioritized over individuality, led Paik to revolt and reject conventional form of canvas and representation of reality altogether. He has a bachelor of Fine Arts from Cornell University, where he graduated with Post-Baccalaureate Award and the Elsie Dinsmore Popkins Memorial Painting Award. Since then, he has shown internationally in Italy and Korea, and had his first solo exhibition in New York City in 2014.
