Park Seo-bo’s “Ecriture” at Galerie Perrotin in Hong Kong

By Caroline Wall

March 22, 2016

Today, Korean modernist Park Seo-bo debuts his latest exhibition, “Ecriture,” at Galerie Perrotin in Hong Kong, kicking off the week of Art Basel Hong Kong. The show’s title, French for “writing,” describes Park’s extensive series of monochrome, pattern-based works that he began in 1967 and has continued for over 50 years since.

Among the founders of Dansaekhwa, a Korean Minimalist movement from the ‘70s, Park uses hand-layered mulberry paper to create textures and patterns as the focal points of his pieces. At the turn of the new millennium, he abandoned the neutral colors of the movement in favor of flashy, saturated colors inspired by the Seoul cityscape. Influenced by Buddhism and the French Art Informel movement, Park’s work combines transcendentalism from the East with Abstract Expressionism from the West to create an impulsive, captivating series. The exhibition will be on display through May 5.
