Rhythm in Monochrome | Korean Abstract Painting
Korean abstract art has drawn plenty of attention in the art world over the past several years, and the work of its best-known practitioners has been fetching high prices at art auctions around the world. Perhaps most captivating about the country’s unique take on the form is that it blends the concepts of Western abstract art with the spirit of traditional Eastern art and inspiration from natural forms. This collection of works focuses on the Dansaekhwa (“monochrome”) movement, which manages to achieve significant aesthetic effect with a minimalist approach.
