Jangmee Park was born in Seoul, Korea in 1964. She received her BFA and MFA from the Ewha Woman’s University in Seoul and began exhibiting her works in 1988.
Whether they are on paper or on canvas, small or large, Park’s paintings are filled with playful imagery and daring colours. Paint, oil pastels and collage are juxtaposed with confidence. According to the artist, her abstract compositions are meant as a representation of human life. Life, like Park’s art, is an accumulation of memories, of shapes, moments and colours. Park’s work can therefore be interpreted as a mapping of human experiences.
Today, galleries across Canada and the United States represent Park’s work.
