BYOUNG OK

MIN

Min is one of the pioneering female Korean American artists. She received a Master of Fine Arts at the Pratt Institute in New York, and had invested more than 50 years in abstract paintings. Min has continually evolved, reconstituting imaginative elements as a painterly and structural form. Her current works have serpentine crossing lines over geometric compositions, which turn inside out, organically harmonize two aspects: cool-headedness and tenderness. Min emphasizes the existence of each element and the tension between them. To the artist, the tension is a creation. It can be formed when the each existence is comprised in an equal gravity beyond its space. The existence is a stimulation that gives liveliness and vitality to her art.
