Keun Young Park
Keun Young Park depicts the body in a state of transformation. Her works on paper show floating figures, faces, draped arms and cupped hands, which appear to be disintegrating and reforming at once. The artist begins her process with original photographs keyed to various evocative hues. The images are torn and pasted on paper or wood panels. Between the pasted tiny pieces are thin, white, vein-like lines that reveal the texture of the paper’s edge. Park’s practice has a relationship to the precision of Pointillism, the uniformity of Benday dots and the repetition of digital pixelation but her works retain a tactile, hand-made quality through the irregularly shaped elements from which they are formed.
Keun Young Park was born in Seoul, South Korea, where she received her BFA and MFA Degrees in Sculpture at Seoul National University. Since 2005, Park has lived and worked in New York. She has received awards from A.I.R. Gallery, Artist Talk on Art, and the New Jersey State Council of the Arts, as well as residencies with Vermont Studio Residency Program and Triangle Arts Workshop. Park has had numerous solo and group exhibits in the United States, Europe and Asia
