Curator's Eye

Sunok Chun’s expressive abstract canvases are inhabited by whirling thoughts and emotions. Antithetical in their composition, Chun’s work presents a visual discourse between chaos and order. Defiant strokes and spontaneous splashes of paint burst with energy and fervour, contrasted and emphasised by geometric, cool backgrounds that celebrate the importance of negative space. The artist got their BFA in Seoul and their MFA at Pratt's Institute, New York, and effortlessly melds both Eastern and Western traditions into these powerful abstract works.

Inspiration behind the piece:

Concept as complete freedom, space and limitation set the foundation for work.
