Heebeom Park: Finding Harmony in Contrast

| December 7, 2013

South Korean artist Heebeom Park seeks to find harmony in difference, contrasting and juxtaposing contrasting elements and subjects in his Abstract Expressionist oil and acrylic paintings. Park uses a variety of techniques (including brushwork, taping, and the incorporation of mixed media) to create geometric patterns accented by bright colors and compelling forms. What results is a reconfiguration of space and time that infuses new meaning into the ordinary symbolism of our modern world. The inspiration for Park’s paintings comes from the artistic elements he is able to find in the everyday objects that surround us. The result is that he is able to achieve great freedom in terms of subject and form. As he explains: “Everyone dreams of freedom, and although it is impossible to reach a true level of freedom in a life which is so bounded by rules and limitations, art is my way of reaching beyond these boundaries and achieving a level of liberation.”

Heebeom Park currently lives and works in Bergen, New Jersey, in the United States.

About the Exhibition
Through the artwork of Sensorial Realms the audience is reminded of the unending power of curiosity to illuminate aspects of both ourselves and our lives. The creations resonate on a visual, mental and emotional level, touching the audience in multiple and manifold ways. The artists whose works appear in Pathway to Abstraction present their individual perspectives in entertaining and energetic pieces whose considerable appeal lies in their ability to shed new light on old mysteries while leaving new secrets tantalizingly hidden. The works in The Odyssey Within display a degree of enlightened introspection that is both rare and intensely alluring. Combined with a perceptive view of the world, the result is a collection of unforgettable and enduring art.
