Seungmo Park (박승모) is a New York-based Korean artist whose works straddle the line between sculpture, installation, and portraiture. Known for his work with metal wire and stainless steel wire mesh, his MAYA series expresses the illusionary image as exposition of consciousness and reality. Taken from the Sanskrit word translating to ‘illusion’, MAYA is influenced by Park’s time in India and his dreams. Using models that resemble a woman he once met in his dreams, portraits are projected onto layers of wire mesh that are then strategically and meticulously clipped and snipped away at. With this subtractive technique, Park creates portraits of physical and visual depth, with each resultant work inches thick, with further dimensionality created by playing with light and shadow. Calm in its serenity of image, materiality, and surface, Seungmo Park’s works are meditative and multilayered visual experiences.
Seungmo Park’s works have been exhibited in solo exhibitions, group shows, and art fairs throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Korea, and Taiwan. Notable exhibitions include Meticulously Snipped and Wrapped (Michigan, United States) and Korean Eye (Seoul, New York, Abu Dhabi, and London).
