Park Byung-Hoon (France)

Employing paint and acrylic plexiglass, Park Byung-Hoon creates a unique synthesis of geometric and ethereal forms. Stylistically comparable to the Minimalist movement and approach of the 1960s, Byung-Hoon’s work engages the audience in an exclusive dialogue, affording viewers a singular opportunity to interpret independent from suggestion.
As with the Minimalist precedent, the ever-present prospect of impossibility of interpretation exists as well, intensifying personal experience of Byung-Hoon’s work.
Capitalizing on the transparent nature of glass, Byung-Hoon is able to create elegant, dream-like abstractions. Rather than attempting to control the paint, he allows the medium to flow freely within the acrylic before capturing its progress mid-motion. Such a reductive method of creation calls attention to the materiality of the work, while simultaneously allowing the artist to focus exclusively on the hues and patterns created as a result of the process.
The pronounced three-dimensionality of the acrylic glass enables Byung-Hoon to take a deliberate step away from the traditional
distinction between painting and sculpture, and toward a more personal exploration of the physical nature of art as an object.
Park Byung-Hoon was born in Korea and currently lives and works in Paris, France.
