Yun Hyong-Keun

IMG_950014 monumental works by Yun Hyong-Keun were recently on view in David Zwirner’s NYC Gallery. Working in the Dansaekhwa style of monochrome painting, a technique developed in Korea after the Korean conflict, Hyong-Keun utilizes two colors in his pieces: ultramarine and umber. After layering paint in either vertical or horizontal thick stripes, he added turpentine to the canvas which allowed the colors to blend together and create softer stripes. These were a few of my favorites.
