Park Eun-sook

<<    LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE   >>

 

 

 

Eun Sook Park’s latest work, ‘Origin, to the light’, can be understood in close connection to her previous work such as ’Origin, Red Harmony’ and ‘Origin-Origin’, and yet the color density and purity have been enhanced by adding the effect of Orphism and/or Rayonism to her conventional graphism.

According to her script, ‘work note 2013’, her latest works based on the concept of light try to depicture the harmonious scene in which the fictitious entities glorifying the birth of life under the light source.

Overall, the current work stands out from her previous paintings in its intensity of the four primary color (red, yellow, blue and green), and shows variation in the color technique introducing gold and silver colors. Macroscopically, it tries to express three-dimensional depth by combining the two-dimensional graphism with the colorism.

In addition, one can glimpse the methodological transformation in the expression of the hues by looking into its significant dripping and color-brushed background.

This transformation is apparently made by the artist’s intention on the origin of light, superposed on admiration of the birth of light.

It may be said that this definitive change came from the notion of light source as the origin of life, the scenery of the birth of life, and festive expression of it.

The artist thought of light as the origin of everything and strived to project it onto the canvas, unlike her conventional trajectory in which the artist thought of the birth of light an ecstasy and rejoiced the beginning of life.

***

Entre ciel et univers planétaire, les arborescences graphiques de Park Eun-Sook naviguent au gré de son imagination féconde ; tels des modules depenseé concentrée en points de conscience esthétique.

En contemplant ses œuvres, on a le sentiment de pénétrer au fonctionnement de notre cerveau, miroir du foisonnement cosmique, d’examiner les multples activités de nos neurones en train d’établir les connexions fantastiques et magiques, qui permettent le jaillissement de tous les actes et sentiments de l’être humain.

Parfois proches d’une écriture symbolique, parfois représentant les nuées célestes, entre étoiles et nébuleuses, les éclaboussements picturaux de Park Eun-Sook diffusent une énergie perpétullement en mouvement, vivant aux confins des origines de la création.

La choix de l’abstraction est ici totalement en actéqation avec son inspiration, sans qu’elle soit absolument définie ; elle semble en effet naître spontanément, en se mettant en osmose avec les forces invisibles flottant dans l’espace.

Le travail des artistes, Kandinsky ou Paul Klee, semble avoir fasciné Park Eun-Sook ; pourtant, elle a su réinventer avec l’impulsion de ses origines, et une vision très personnelle,l’univers de l’infiniment petit, porté au rang d’incarnation du spirituel par ces grants maîtres de la peinture.
