Jinie Park
Mobility

Paintings
January 7 - January 30, 2016

formatting

Jinie Park creates ethereal works on canvas with thinly layered, translucent washes of paint. Through her abstraction she investigates and engages with the history and conventions of painting, applying paint on all sides of her canvas. Her physical involvement with, and manipulation of the work renders the painting a sculptural quality. What becomes evident upon viewing is that Park's unconventional painting methods and installations, provide the viewer with a particular spatial and perceptual experience. She examines not only the transcendent beauty of the object, but the space it consumes. In Mobility, Park attempts to convey the sense of movement she feels while painting her shaped and collaged works. Her intention is that the paintings, while still and passive, will capture and impart the dynamic moments of action that occur during the process of adding material or manipulating the canvas.

Born in Seoul, South Korea in 1987, Park received a BFA in Painting at Seoul National University (Seoul, South Korea) in 2011 and an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore, MD) in 2015. Her work has been shown in 2014 at the Louisiana Biennial Juried Exhibition, School of Design at Louisiana Tech University (Ruston, LA) and in 2010 in a Juried Exhibition at Weiser Gallery, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA). Park was awarded the Henry Walters Traveling Fellowship in 2015 and the LeRoy E. Hoffberger Scholarship from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2013 and in 2009 she was awarded the Choi Wook-Kyung Prize from Seoul National University. This will be Park's first exhibition at the Elizabeth Leach Gallery.
