The Korea Times

Artist Suh Seung-won, 77, is considered one of the early members of the Dansaekhwa (Korean monochrome) movement and the founder of the theoretical basis for Korean modernism. He has pursued his "Simultaneity" series throughout his career, exploring interactions between geometric patterns and backgrounds.

Titled "Early Works: 1960s to 1980s," an exhibit showcasing how Suh's rigid geometric forms evolved in "Simultaneity" is currently on view at the Tina Kim Gallery in New York through Oct. 12.

For Suh, "Simultaneity enables the unseen to be seen, ensuring that what is happening in the world of nirvana or beyond dark could be represented through me."
