Jung Min Park: Memoryscape

On View: June 24 - October 1, 2017

Wyatt Resident Artists Gallery

Jung Min Park creates dynamic urban and architectural scenes through first-hand experiences and observations of cities and sites. Her memories form alternative narratives and personify places.

In Memoryscape the works play with the tension between the organic, geometric, natural, and artificial aspects of our cities and built environments. Park’s dense and often playful paintings and embroidery on cut fabric and paper become layered and sculptural.

While cutting and collaging, the artist plays with the boundaries between reality and illusion. Shadows in the works caused by positive and negative space represent the boundaries between consciousness and unconsciousness.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jung Min Park’s works have been selected for solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally including Annapolis Maritime Museum in Annapolis, MD, DC Arts Center in Washington, DC, Greater Reston Arts Center in Reston, VA, Hillyer Art Space in Washington, DC, The Painting Center in New York, NY, and Gallery 175 in Seoul, Korea. She won first prize from The Water Works show at Maryland Federation of Art and two awards from Korea Modern Cultural Art Association. Park has received a fellowship from The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and a grant from the Korean Ministry of Cultures, Sports, and Tourism. She earned her MFA from Pratt Institute and two BFA’s from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago and Korea National University of Arts.
