We are pleased to present our first exhibition with artist Sin Park, offering the opportunity to explore an expansive presentation of her latest work, featuring an installation of 200 drawings made daily over the first lockdown in 2020, and a series of large-scale paintings.

Park’s paintings momentarily suspend time, drawing you into a dialogue with paint across her canvases, immersing you in what she sees, feels and hears. Each painting is a capsule of time and space with a narrative intimate to the artist, hinted at through the titles of the work (Her Blue Sky, Private Party and Dance With the One Who Brought You.)

 

A collection of 200 drawings serve as a visual diary, recording every day and night between 24 March - 1 July 2020. Indicative of an emotional and physical state, each drawing gives a subtle insight into the artist’s mood, the seasons outside, as well as the political and cultural landscape.
