Park, Jim

About the artist
Born in South Korea, Park came to Canada when he was 13 and grew up in Abbotsford, BC. He is attracted to the use of large canvas to capture the sense of loneliness that may be evoked by situations such as watching the waves crash on the beach. Park implements accidental, swift and fluid mark-making techniques in his work, and tries to approach each painting without any set of formula, in an effort to simplify the process, and be faithful to the creative evolution of each individual work. Influenced by the changing landscape and rapid globalization of cities he has lived in, his large-scale paintings function as a tangible record and re-creation of his mental and emotional experiences while walking through these landscapes. He completed his BFA at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design ('03) and his work has been collected publicly and privately in Canada and U.S. He is represented by Kimoto Gallery in Vancouver, BC, Art rental and sales operated by the Vancouver art gallery and Douglas Udell Gallery in Edmonton, AB.
