Min Ha Park's installations and abstract paintings are concerned with personal memories and perception, and sensory experiences of the world.Read More
Min Ha Park's abstract paintings expand the landscape genre as an array of encounters with the senses and the human body. Invisible phenomena such as emotions and health conditions are captured in her paintings. The Ringxiety works from 2019, for example, depict small ovals encircled in a larger shape, rendered with short brushstrokes that evoke vibration and sound.
Emotional imprints of environmental conditions formed the crux of Peculiar Weather (2020), a solo exhibition at Whistle in Seoul. Using varied brushstrokes and a juxtaposition of intense and sombre colours, Min Ha Park recreated the suffocating sensation that she felt while driving through a hazy dawn.
Min Ha Park received her BFA from School of Visual Arts, New York, in 2006 and MFA from Yale University in 2011.
