Night Visions is a solo exhibition of South Korean artist Jieun Park on view from 6 September through 1 October, 2017. Featuring her latest series of cityscape paintings, the exhibition
also marks the artist’s first foray into sculpture. Park’s distinctive style blends large brushstrokes and splatters of ink with detailed depictions of urban landscapes at night. While capturing the excitement and magic of various cities – among these, for example, are Hong Kong, Singapore, London and New York – the works also reveal a more subdued, contemplative narrative. Through her paintings, Park hints at a paradox of urban life – being surrounded by thousands of people, yet feeling utterly alone.
The artist states:
The city is changing very fast while we are living our busy lives. The dull feeling of the buildings in my works portrays the people in hectic daily life where only meaningless everyday conversation exists.
Park’s latest collection is a continuation of her previous exhibitions at REDSEA Gallery, but it is also a new emergence for the artist. As her painting style evolves, focusing more intensely on the Chinese ink brushstrokes and incorporating new materials such as gold leaf, Park has also taken on a new challenge – sculpture. The exhibition will feature four wall-mounted sculptures constructed of birch plywood, Park’s signature black paint and gold leaf. Leaving the cityscapes behind, the new works concentrate entirely on the expression of the brushstroke in three dimensions.
