Hyunsu Park (South Korea)
The artist's focus is on experiments that convert light into energy through color. In a nutshell, this involves representing images accumulated in the memory of past experiences in a hybrid form of pop and abstract on a flat surface. This process embodies both inner and outer duality and carries complex symbolic meanings.
Internally, it deals with the issues of collision, conflict, and fusion between Eastern and Western cultures experienced over a long period of time. Externally, it involves the act of executing the work, requiring the repetition of free-dripping and extreme concentration, often referred to as "digging," which carves out form through painting on a single canvas, generating new energy on the screen or in space.
The diverse symbols resulting from these actions are a visual language through which the artist dreams of communication. While these symbols represent invisible energies in the artist's visual language, ironically, they are also similar to the diversity of races and humans, and they share a connection with the birth of the universe. Looking at this in reverse, it becomes clear that diversity ultimately stems from unity.
