Sungsoo Park

I draw people, objects, and anything that has a shape but do not know them very well. I only know what the object is used for and what the person looks like. I do not know a lot of things like what the objects are made of and what flaws they have. I do not know the person's preference nor know how much patience he or she has. I would have to admit that a person like me who is inconsistent, would have to say that I only know a little from the whole if asked.

 

However, one thing for sure is that all of those including me, us, and the world interact and are an organic existence. The material I know called coincidental which is used with instant factor most suits the organic expression. The moment of fascination keeps me picking up my brush; hence I have been pursing this moment constantly and started on my work.

 

I use the traditional East Asian painting materials and technique for my artwork. I worked with mulberry papers and Korean Ink and the most typical technique is called "Yeoback".

 

The "Yeoback" can be explained the space which is not painted. It's about tension between painted space and the space is not painted on the paper which has a full of poetic expression and the understated vitality.
