Jung Min Park: Blink Blank

On View: January 18 - March 28, 2020

Wyatt Resident Artists Gallery

In the exhibition Blink Blank, AAC resident artist Jung Min Park presents a series of large sculptural light boxes, along with a selection of new wall-based works. In her light boxes, Park builds up layers of imagery drawn from her own accumulated memories of specific places – places she either lived or visited for extended periods of time. The artist breaks down and rebuilds these landscapes and cityscapes, layering familiar objects and spaces into complex and abstract compositions. The layering of Park’s imagery within the light boxes evokes the fragmentation of memory. Park’s light boxes are influenced by photography, a medium that relies on flashing light to preserve a single moment, balancing the seeming simplicity of a second in time with the complexity that a single moment can actually contain. The harmonization of opposites is a recurring theme throughout Park’s work. She brings together simplicity and complexity, abstraction and figuration, light and shadow, the man-made and the natural, the past and the present.


Jung Min Park is a mixed-media artist based in Washington, DC. Her work has been selected for numerous solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally, including CulturalDC (Washington, DC), Transformer (Washington, DC), Washington Project for the Arts (Washington, DC), Annapolis Maritime Museum (Annapolis, MD), DC Arts Center (Washington, DC), Greater Reston Arts Center (Reston, VA), IA&A at Hillyer (Washington, DC), The Painting Center (NY), Chashama (NY), Gallery 175 (Seoul, Korea), ARC Gallery (IL), MG Gallery (IL) and POSCO Art Museum (Seoul, Korea).
