Park Nohwan

The artist, using watercolor and Arabian gum as mediums, employs a method of coloring on the canvas, melting it, and wiping it repeatedly to create unique forms. The somewhat loose and peculiar atmosphere emanating from the artist's work brings to mind indistinct sensations and emotions that were inherently present but couldn't be clearly perceived or expressed through language. Everyday objects and landscapes are interpreted and expressed like images from an internet blog. The intersection of actual reality and virtual images creates a unique atmosphere. Although outwardly adhering to the traditional expression of painting, the artist combines experiences of painting, photography, video, and digital imagery in content. The rapid change in the overwhelming multimedia environment dominated by digital images forces shifts in human senses and cognition. Park Nohwan's images reflect such transformations in the world and human experiences.
