PARK Kyungryul studied painting at Hongik University, and earned an MFA at Chelsea College of Art in the UK. The artist has been experimenting with the various elements that a painting consists of. In particular, she is interested in adopting formal experimentation in literature and turning it into structures of visual painting and its narrative constructions. The artist constructs a variety of intuitively drawn images on a screen and explores the structure that determines the narrative of the painting. Through this experimentation that is unconventional in the field of painting, the artist asks the fundamental question of what art should present.
At the Incheon Art Platform, in addition to her preparations for her solo exhibition this year, The artist will expand upon the experimentation in her practice. She will more actively explore material properties by including formal experiments that correspond to her existing idea of ‘sculptural painting’, which utilizes space as a part of a structure that connects narratives that she focuses on as part of her study on the ‘act of reading’.
