Artist’s Bio

Sin Park is a visual artist and PhD candidate in Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art. She completed an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art in 2017, and a BFA in Painting from Ewha Womans University in 2012. At the centre of her work is passion for process, discovery, and intuition. Her art is concerned with the perception and recollection of the sensory, and the notion of memory with an approach in momentary gestural actions, responsiveness and the preoccupation for colour, texture and composition. She utilises motifs as a precursor to the indeterminable, through which the real, or that is to say reflections of the real, become entangled within abstract environments embedded within the surface. This all happens through the activity of painting and constructs a liberated space of complexity.

Her recent works were featured in group shows including; A cabinet of Curiosities (Brownsword Hepworth Gallery, London 2020), Open Window (Square Gallery, London 2020), Annual Show (The Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh 2020), Elephant Lab (Colart, London 2020), Virtues of the Real/ Necessity of the Imaginary (The Art Space Glasgow 2019), Crocodile Tears (Greenpoint Open Studios,  New York 2019), Skip-Ad; Play (Savoy Center, Glasgow 2018), Odyssey (Summerhall, Edinburgh 2018), One summer night (Crypt Gallery, London 2017), The Arrival (Square Gallery, London 2017), The Abstraction of Continents and The Continent of Abstraction (Lychee One, London 2016), Royal Institute of Oil Painters (Mall Galleries, London 2016). She participated in residencies including Elephant Lab (2020), Aucart Lab London (2019), Summerhouse Dusseldorf (2018) and ARNA Harlösa (2018). She will have a solo show in London in October 2021.

박신 작가는 현재 글라스고 예술학교에서 박사 과정 중이다. 영국 왕립 학교에서 회화 석사(2017), 이화 여자 대학교 회화과 학사(2012)를 취득 하였다. 작가는 작업의 과정과 그 안에서의 발견, 직관에 의한 순간의 선택을 중요시 한다. 작가의 작업은 감각의 인식과 수집된 기억을 기반으로 다양한 색감과 질감을 통해 구성되며 이는 작업 중 순간적인 몸짓과 행동에 대한 반응을 통해 완성된다. 자주 사용하는 모티프를 기반으로 불확실한 결과를 가질 수 밖에 없는 과정을 계속해서 탐구하는데, 이는 페인팅에서 현실을 반영한 이미지와 화면의 추상적 성격이 얽혀져 작업 표면에서 함께 드러난다. 모든 것은 작품 안에서 행위를 통해 이뤄지며 이는 복잡한 자유 공간을 구성한다.

그녀의 최근 작품은 A cabinet of Curiosities (Brownsword Hepworth Gallery, 런던2020), Open Window (Square Gallery, 런던2020), Annual Show (The Royal Scottish Academy, 에딘버러2020), Elephant Lab (Colart, 런던2020), Virtues of the Real / Ncessity of the Imaginary (The Art Space 글라스고2019), Crocodile Tears (Greenpoint Open Studios,뉴욕2019), Skip-Ad; Play (Savoy Center, 글라스고2018), Odyssey (Summerhall, 에딘버러2018), One summer night (Crypt Gallery, 런던2017), The Arrival (Square Gallery, 런던2017), The Abstraction of Continents and The Continent of Abstraction (Lychee One , 런던2016), Royal Institute of Oil Painters (Mall Galleries, 런던2016) 등에서 전시 되었으며, Elephant Lab (런던 2020), Aucart Lab (런던,2019), Summerhouse (뒤셀도르프 2018) 및 ARNA (할로사2018) 레지던시에 참여했다. 2021 년 10 월 런던에서의 개인전이 예정되어 있다.
