Anna Paik: Invocation

​Han Collection | 33 Museum Street | Bloomsbury | London WC1A 1LH |
24 – 31 October 2017

A Visual Meditation of Condensed Memory
Oil Paintings inspired by Korean Ceramic Bowls and Moon Jars


Schooled in the tradition of western oil painting, London-based South Korean-born painter Anna Paik has for the last ten years infused her Korean spiritual roots in her canvases. In this extraordinary and thought-provoking series of Still Lifes, Paik captures the essence of the human heart through images which evoke the simplicity and purity of Korean Ceramic bowls.

Composed in subtly modulated silvery light and shadow, Paik’s quietly shimmering brushstrokes recall classical ‘sfumato’. Paik transforms the image of a single vessel into a permanent tableau for visual meditation and contemplation.
