Young-Ha Park

Seoul, Korea, 1954

YOUNG-HA PARK (b Seoul 1954) is one of Korea?s best-known painters, voted ?Artist of the Year? by the Korean art critics association in 1991. A resolutely abstract artist, Young Ha-Park?s work has a certain affinity with the American Abstract Expressionists, including Rothko and Pollock, but the influence of Eastern Philosophy renders it inherently non-aggressive. His sense of the landscape and the extensive sources on which he draws via his Korean Roots allow Australians to look at their own landscape painters and tradition with fresh eyes.

Young Ha Park has had many solo and group exhibitions in Korea as well as the USA, Australia, Hungary, Germany and Japan. His work is features in numerous Australian collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the New England Regional Art Museum, the Queensland Art Gallery and numerous distinguished private collections through out NSW and Victoria.

Young-Ha Park has had five solo exhibitions at Annandale Galleries since 1992.
