Park Seo-Bo Today, Playing with Color Close
- Period/ 2007.05.11(Fri) ~ 2007.07.08(Sun)
PARK Seo-Bo has been a key artist in contemporary Korean painting. He has been recognized as a pathfinder in contemporary Korean art, constantly engaging in monochromes he refers to as “ecriture.” After 55 years of artistic experience, the exhibition he will join at the GMoMA this year will help set up criterion to interpret his art in a new way. This show is designed to cast light on his recent works, focusing primarily on his latest pursuit of art. The year 2000 was a turning point for Park as it was then that his art made a shift from achromatic monochromes to chromatic monochromes. This shift can be interpreted as something upgraded and expanded that brought a new aesthetic attempt to discover color to his preexisting frame of “ecriture.” Stemming from nature, his colors can be described as spiritual tonalities filtered in a process of sublimation through meditation. Park displays the culmination of an artistic purification by lending unrefined colors commonly found in our surroundings to his canvas. What is most important in his color “ecriture” is a balance between time and light.

The upcoming exhibition at Lobby Gallery was designed to make the museum’s lobby space stand out and enable visitors to better perceive its entire space. The exhibition of Jinnie Seo, a post-monochrome artist who shares the aesthetic trend with Park Seo-Bo, will take place here in the lobby. Seo abandoned the widely accepted idea that paintings should be hung on a wall when she began to engage in painting. She manages to extensively evolve three-dimensional drawing through her concerns about space which she has been dealing with in her past two-dimensional works, presenting a new possibility in painting.

The museum's inaugural exhibition brings 146 pieces by Joan Miro, a Spanish painter born in Barcelona, together. As its title Joan Miro: Parade of Obsessions intimates, the exhibition's theme and approach is not like that of other exhibitions of foreign artists held in Korea. That is, world renowned master’s works are not classified by year or genre but the exhibition provides us with an opportunity to view his works from a new perspective. These works have been selected through several consultative meetings with the Joan Miro Foundation in Barcelona over two years.
