From 11 November to 11 November, ONE AND J. Gallery will be hosting the exhibition Fantavision, the ninth solo exhibition from artist Park Kyung Ryul, who has spent many years carrying out experiments in the medium of painting. This exhibition will introduce approximately fifteen blue paintings of identical size.
Artist Park Kyung Ryul has experimented with art both inside and outside the frame, explored a variety of mediums, and has held exhibitions that interrogate the potential and limits of painting. At her solo exhibition To Counterclockwise held at Doosan Gallery in 2020, she undertook preliminary experiments concerning the two-dimensionality of time/space in paintings; at this exhibition, however, she uses painting to transform these two-dimensional spaces into multi-dimensional spaces.
As the title of the exhibition suggests, her works can be perceived as an instantaneous encounter with 'fantasy.' However, when one concentrates on the endless, accumulated layers within the work, they can also be experienced as something dense and tightly constructed. Therefore, through the use of the term Fantavision, the artist implies that this mode of perception possesses a certain physicality. To explore this space within the painting, the artist places limits on certain conditions, such as the size and color of the canvas, and the images, and manipulates only the dimension of the brushstrokes, canvas, and paint. In her paintings, a layer of glue is visible beneath the thin layer of paint, and under that is visible the plain of the canvas; by revealing these overlapping levels, the artist induces the viewer to concentrate on the physicality of the two-dimensional paintings.
