Credited as one of the originators of the Korean Dansaekhwa movement (also known as The Korean Monochrome Movement), Park’s rigorous conceptual work is inextricably linked to notions of time, space and material. Rooted in Taoist and Buddhist philosophy, in particular the writings of Lao-Tzu and Chuang Tzu, this lineage is manifest in the process of repetitive action and a highly physical manipulation of paint and materials.
