CDS Gallery is proud to announce that the search for
writers for the gallery website is over. The winners are
Suzie Park, Jinee Park and John Choi. Writing for the
gallery will be a great opportunity to showcase their
talents and interests and it will certainly help on their
college applications. Below is an excerpt from the first
review, by Suzie Park, on the website of our current
exhibition. To read more please visit
“There is something perfect to be found in the imperfect: the law keeps balance
through the juxtaposition of beauty, which gains perfection through nurtured
imperfection.” - Dejan Stojanovic
Portraits of humans with canines for heads, mismatching
labels towards iconic figures, and surreal representations
of the human body; the incongruous aspects
emphasized by the artworks in this exhibition all remain
true to the theme of juxtaposition, the positioning of two
strikingly different images or ideas together to create a
contrasting effect. And it is the sharp distinction that
occurs within each painting, each sketch, and each
model that leaves such a strong impression.
The exhibition can be distinguished into three main
groups. The first section is composed of large
portraits of easily recognized figures in society. As
many recent visitors to the gallery can attest to, the
first impression that is received is, literally, the giant
figure of Charlie Chaplin on a blank white wall. The
other subjects include Emma Watson, Michael
Jackson, and Kim Jong-un (diverse). All four of the
drawings are large scaled, and divided into four
different sections, each of the parts with slightly
mismatching drawing styles, as different students worked together to create one
portrait of their celebrity. The subtitles, marked under the drawings, attract even more
attention, as they so sharply contradict the normally conceived ideas regarding the

CDS 6 v Chadwick JV 0
Friday afternoon, the sun is shinning and school is over for the
week what better to do than head to the soccer field to watch
the boys of CDS take on the junior varsity team of Chadwick.
The CDS team certainly didn’t disappoint! Fielding several
younger players and some squad members it took little time for
CDS to convert their dominance into goals. Captain James
Park got the scoreboard moving with a well taken first before
YS normally a star on the basketball court exploded onto the
pitch his drive and run was impossible for Chadwick to handle
and in a blink of an eye he had a hat trick and retreated back
onto the bench to preserve his fitness for the upcoming derby
Making his debut for this year Kevin Choi reminded the fans
what they had been missing out on as he concentrated on
academics and college entry over the early part of the season,
with a performance that oozed class. 2 goals and an assist was
his reward the finish for the second showed composure and
great footwork.
Mr. Kim will provide an overview
