Park Dong-Soo

Born 1964, Seo-san, South Korea. Lives and works in Haemi, South Korea.

When we spot on his works, the feeling of a great surprise stems from energies spouted from action painting and sculpture created by him. It seems that the blasting power we feel from his work is fully controlled by him. The word “blasting” cannot be emphasized too much as it is acknowledged that his work has been heavily influenced by the collision of planets on the basis of cosmogony. We can sense that such as significant is his painting filled with dynamic energy and sense of balance and an impromptu like “ready-made”.

At the same time, Cosmogony that is intact being witnessed from all of his work is strangely related to the micro cosmos and inner world such as human body system, cell body and fertilization.

Such a metaphysical vector bestows on his work density and opacity due to the being created by using acrylic pigment, oil colors, rendering, Korean paper (hanji) and a highly densified compound of inky water.

Thick layers like carapace found from many of his works are similar to the surface of lava. Almost every place of his work is well-themed that primitive energy, desire and violence have originated from a breeding ground of the unconsciousness of power…

The subject “Here we are” (Cette place-là) may seem very ambitious yet shows us how humble and modest human being should be. As a “through-created series”, it is determined to lead us into what is beyond our imaginative capability, utilizing what is contrary to well-plotted mechanism…

Park’s work is not like an outlet to your artistic desire but helps you understand how it has been ideally prepared for our world, which is unique systematic and profound.
