DOOSAN Gallery New York is pleased to announce the first New York solo exhibition of Korea-based painter Sejin Park’s Won-Kyung, from November 15 to December 15, 2012. The exhibition features Park’s paintings full of emotion reflecting her dedicated devotion of expressing one’s landscape of mind using delicate brush strokes and sensitive colors.
Park is known for her paintings, which create indigenous to her landscape of Won-Kyung, a Korean word for ‘perspective in-distance’. Unlike the distinctive space that separates boundaries of two forms, her periphery of artistic space exists in the farthest possible distance of human sense’s reach that can only be perceived by the fading pale light. Here, the movements of forms vibrate, crash and merge into each other as she discreetly piles up the layers of brush strokes of colors blurring the boundaries of forms; thus, accomplishing landscape of ‘Won-Kyung’.
Park often starts a canvas with the extracted color from the natural resources such as cherries and roses. Then, she adds oil colors creating harmonious landscape of shape and color. In this process, she brings nature through exquisite brush stroke and matière within inimitable atmosphere in the depth of space.
In a mean while, the exhibition also includes one of Park’s new paintings, A Day in the Life of Dr. Kim, which questions the existential conditions of human life.
