Park Kyung Ryul: A child who is picky about food (2018). Oil on canvas, 80 x 80cm.

Dear <<First Name>>,

LUNGLEY Gallery is pleased to present On evenness, an exhibition of new paintings and works on paper by Park Kyung Ryul.
 Please join us for the private view on Friday 8th June 2018, 6-9pm.

In each work, the artist employs formal dualities from the art historical canon – namely, narration versus abstraction, colour versus line, flat versus passive space, and painting versus drawing.  

Gestural brush marks record the creative process through painterly illusion; the composition suggests an organic architecture, evoking an expanse of internalised psychological perception. Kyung Ryul’s composition suggests private thought that is simultaneously whimsical and brutal. Yet, strangely intimate, her abstractions negotiate a space for both ideas and feelings, attune with an emotional appreciation. Her hypersensitive style captivates with a convincing resonance, negotiating the sublime traditions of abstract painting with a unique and momentous confidence she paints with a sense of spontaneous immediacy, ultimately, conveying a sense of experimentation and discovery within her contemplative gestures.

The works elude easy categorisation, moving freely between apparent abstraction and coded figuration, between traditional painting and illustration. Highly intuitive in approach, rich, colourful paintings flow with a stream of conscious expression, and forms radiate incoherent rhythm. The heterogeneity evident in each composition invites the viewer to resist finding a resolve in finished artworks but indulge in the liminal space that Kyung Ryul creates using her own visual language.

Park Kyung Ryul lives and works in Seoul, Korea. Her work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at galleries in Seoul, Korea and London, UK.
