Notice of an exhibition in Walton-on-Thames by Kye Sook Park, whom we last noticed exhibiting in Mokspace in 2013:
Kye Sook Park
Robert Phillips Gallery | Riverhouse Arts Centre | Manor Road | Walton on Thames | Surrey KT12 2PF
Wednesday 30 March – Sunday 17 April
10am – 4pm Monday to Saturday 11am-4pm Sunday
Born and brought up in South Korea, Kye Sook Park graduated from Dongguk university in Seoul with an MA in Education and a BA in Fine Art. Most of her work in oriental painting reflects the feelings of the artist and emphasises the themes of images, rather than drawing the object as it is. As well as emotions, the spaces left untouched are very important in Korean painting.
Park’s work mainly expresses the moving world of human life, using rapid sketching for capturing those precious feelings at the very moment they occur. The essence and philosophy of Indian ink are expressed, as well as varieties of pencils and brushes to represent positive and negative. In these pictures the road represents Park’s life and the trees can be seen as the people she encounters, friends and family. She and her friends are then able to share a mutual appreciation of the view over which they look.
