Shinyoung Park

Shinyoung Park’s artistic practice focuses on visualising the essence of ambivalent, conceptual or psychological borders.

“My process of perceiving the world and artwork is related to my childhood memory with my father, a photographer. When I saw the scene developing photos in the dark room, I realised that an image is the result of distilling essence from the crack of reality through a moment. For this process, my work starts from drawing, expanding to painting and printmaking. For me, drawing is the in-between act of crossing life and death, or observation and imagination. And I think an image is created by freezing and reviving a certain moment in the frame of mortality. The thing I do is to treat the dead moments as an undertaker and to gather them as a collector.”
