Selected for the DOOSAN Residency New York program in 2019, Kyung Ryul Park asks the fundamental question of painting on “what is painted and what is read through paintings.” Park questions the traditional method of interpreting painting, which focuses on deciphering the story created within the work. Furthermore, Park presents a new methodology for interpreting painting through intuitive images elicited from one’s own memories and experiences. Composing each of the elements in her paintings in a sculpture-like manner, Park encourages the viewers to engage in “visual reading” within her images so that all elements in the work are interpreted in equal standing.
