The use of material in Wonmin Park’s work produces a surreal, dream - like quality reminiscent of seeing something without fixed contours, bound together by light and air. The artist himself says that he aims for a “sense of lightness and purity” and that the works “engage with their surroundings”. Along with the impact of its opaqueness and transparency, Wonmin Park chose resin for its texture giving him “the sensation of painting enveloped by air”. This forms part of his exploration of substantiality versus insubstantiality and his artistic evaluation of uncertainty, ambiguity and vagueness. In the painting process Wonmin Park begins with the extensive mixing of primary colour pigments to create an envisioned colour. After finding the desired colours the pigments are added to the moulds of the resin sections. A muted colouration is obtained within the slabs which maintain their translucency. An element that allows the colours to engage each other in the joints of the structures he creates. His designs sit on the axis between minimal and practical, but always contain an element of dissonance that creates a sense of balance and tension within the work.
