SeungMo Park cuts and manipulates layers of wire mesh into absorbing scenes. In recent bodies of work, the artist creates illusionary installations and sculptures that viewers can pass through. Elsewhere, the artist does fiberglass lifecasting with aluminum wire wrapping.
“His aim is to construct scenes that transcend existence,” says Berlin gallery Magic Beans. “The artist enacts a way of seeing beyond what is real and visible. Each piece is several inches thick and each plane that forms the ﬁnal image is spaced a few ﬁnger widths apart, giving the portraits a depth and dimensionality that is difﬁcult to convey in a photograph. In real life, they have an overwhelming presence and are hauntingly evocative – as if caught in between reality and a parallel universe. The dynamics in perception reﬂect the artist´s conviction that there is no essence to be captured.”
