Contemporary artist Kwang Jean Park’s work is currently on display in the Fermilab Art Gallery on the second floor of Wilson Hall. An artist reception will take place today, from 5 to 7 p.m.
A unique harmony of science and art resonates through the abstract work of contemporary artist Kwang Jean Park. Using woodcut and hand drawings on paper or mixed media on canvas, Park conveys the beauty and the unknown in what she calls the “true substance of nature.” Park’s exhibit will be on display in the Fermilab Art Gallery through Oct. 29.
“Scientists want to explore where we came from, where the universe came from,” Andrew Bae, a Chicago gallery owner and Park’s representative of 20 years, said. “Park is pursuing the same goal, but in a metaphysical and spiritual sense.”
Fermilab’s art gallery curator Georgia Schwender stumbled upon Park’s work in Bae’s gallery.
