Please join us at the Sotheby’s institute of Art as artist Sin Park talks us through her thought processes behind of paintings. This event is free and open to public – RSVP is essential via the Eventbrite link below to gain entry into the premises.

After fulfilling her undergraduate studies at the Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Sin Park went on to study her Masters in Painting at the Royal College of Art, and is currently completing her Ph.D. in Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art where she currently lives and works:

I am interested in notions of memory and ‘not-knowing’ as methods for approaching painting. Critical to this thinking are predetermined actions set against the potential of active eruptions of moments at which the activity stretches into a space that is not-known, where actions are affected by the activity of painting. Momentary gestural action delivers a timeless desire that becomes one with another, sought within an instant through intuition and improvisation. The sensory apparatus makes this possible, makes textural surface and surface of emotional sense an extended moment of absolute proximity and distance, all at once.
