Sin Park


My relationship to painting is connected to the idea of delivering surface or of a space, also, abstracted image function on the surface as metaphors for subjectivity, memory. The real is transformed from one thing into another in the process. It explores memory through the creation of space for invisible visibility and familiar unfamiliarity. In a mysterious moment when uncertainty takes affect the whole painting shifts into the unknown, a metamorphosis that happens often from a lack of control, fear and failure, a form of uncertain certainty in the painting surface. Momentary gestural action delivers that perhaps timeless desire to become one with another sought within instant intuition and improvisation. Therefore you could say that I fall to the surface, into the unforeseen results. The sensory apparatus makes this possible, makes textural surface and surface of emotional sense an extended moment of absolute proximity and distance, all at once. Images from the source of drawing have replaced the actual color and juxtaposition of a dot, line, plain, and an image has therefore fallen away in place of this more exhilarating abstraction. Painting is an apparatus of fantasy driven by desire, the desire of the artist, the subject, and the viewer. Within this notion of memory, the work of art remains within a perpetual process of becoming, the idea of space never quite imaged or captured, forever eluding the present, always already lost but always potentially bringing or delivering familiarities.
