Da Ae Park
Over years of experimentation, my work has shifted toward minimal expression, allowing the pure brilliance of color to speak for itself. I intuitively allow colors to guide me as I react physically to their harmonies or contrast. For instance, favoring the flow of red, I find deepest challenges in facing its opposite, green, where I guide my body to explore the nuances of tone. And then extend to blue. I repeat same format on and on.
Recently, however, I have begun experimented with contrasting panels that again emphasize the edge, now between juxtaposed segments. In my painting, dual dictating principles are the modulation of the surface through process, and the lyrical beauty of the color itself.
