A seminal figure in Korean contemporary art and a founding member of the Dansaekhwa movement, Park Seo-Bo’s (b. 1931, Yecheon) works perfectly demonstrate the commitment to methods and materials that distinguishes a Dansaekhwa painting. Later in the 1980s, Park experimented with the materiality of Hanji paper. Incorporating his own hands or tools, the artist would repeatedly press the wet surface of Hanji so that the soft layers of paper are gently pushed away and jutted into knots. The practice functions as a form of meditation.
