Hae Sung Pak
Hae-Sung Pak’s waltz of creation shifts between order and intuition. This shift is subtle. She is a maverick when she explores her materials, pushing them to the limit evoking a sense of surprise in her artwork. Watching Hae-Sung work in itself is lovely; her whole body moves with every mark…leaning in; getting so close, swiping her arm across the canvas, teasing the materials viscosity, scratching the surface, laughing and walking away only to return seconds later to make a circle placed in the most perfect spot. The relationship between her and her means of expression is powerful, it is honest and it is pure. It speaks of the passion that Hae-Sung brings to everything she touches. Hae-Sung was born in Korea; she immigrated to the US in 1982.
