New Yor k , NY. JanKossen Contemporary is pleased to present FENĂŠTRES DE DIEU, Korean artist Park Byung-Hoon?s second solo show at the gallery, on view from May 11th ? July 1st, 2017. Park Byung-Hoon?s paintings are manifestations of the marriage between bold gestural abstraction and delicate transparency. W hile at first glance, the works are reminiscent of an ethereal Mark Rothko, or a vibrant Clyfford Still, Byung- Hoon is more than a master of contemporary abstract expressionism. He is equally aligned with performance art, his work, acting like a relic of a performative action painting caught mid-stroke. Byung-Hoon takes advantage of the translucence of glass to create a narrative; each layer of acrylic plexiglas revealing a different chapter to his process. Existing simultaneously as paintings and sculptures, Byung-Hoon never attempts to control his paint. Instead he allows it to drip and flow before capturing it mid-motion between layers of acrylic. The beauty of each layer fully realized. W hat is left is a dimensional and storied composition that melds sculpture and painting and allows the viewer to see the inside of a painting. The contrast between his seductive and dynamic layers of vibrant color and his hardedged and minimalistic layers of Plexiglas are inherently provocative and demanding. The viewer is confronted with this divergence before sinking slowly into the layers of Byung-Hoon?s chronicle. Byung-Hoon, coming from three generations of Pastor families, and his works, loosely inspired by stained glass windows, are sometimes viewed as windows to the soul. Park Byung-Hoon was born in 1967. He graduated from Inchon City University, Korea. His work has been exhibited internationally. Park currently lives and works in Paris, France.
