Gallery d’Arte, 548 West 28th Street, Suite 338, New York City is pleased to present Silenced Encounters, a solo exhibition of recent works by HyunSun Park. This show will run from June 1st -7th, 2016 with an opening reception on Friday of June 3rd from 6 to 8 pm.
Her paintings of minimalist geometry are defined by the pure shape and color in her art. The viewer is drawn to her detailed yet compelling use of transparent surface color and deep submerged color below. Using such unique media as acrylic clear gel and paint, HyunSun builds her compositions layer upon layer in an additive process leading to natural textured and voluminous thickness. Her works offer a stabilizing principle of organization on the wood panel.
She creates forms that make one feel like they are swimming or reclining in a frame of their own little world. She uses straight lines and monotonous surfaces to create a frame that encompasses curved lines and streamline, which represent the combination of Art Deco and Art Nouveau style simultaneously. Her works of art pursuing simplicity and basicality seems to maintain a magnetic attraction.
HyunSun also represents philosophical or metaphorical feelings through the aesthetic elements such as the sophistication and restrained beauty of the simple. With each individual work, she undertakes a nuanced investigation of her personal feelings as well as a contemplation of life’s intense ideals and ambiguities. She has created an artistic vocabulary characterized by muted color and rectilinear abstract forms.
HyunSun Park is a painter based in New York City. She graduated from Seoul Art High School and received her BFA recently at the School of Visual Art. She currently lives in New York City and devotes most of her time to her work in Fine Arts since early years.
