한국 현대추상미술 발전에 선구적인 역할을 하며 한국 현대미술의 변천을 선도한 박서보는 1956년 반 국전 선언의 주역으로, 1957년 국내 최초의 앵포르멜 작가로 한국 현대미술사에 각인되었다. 1970년대 이후로는 단색화의 기수로 독보적인 화업을 이어왔으며 한국 전쟁 이후 1960년대 생명을 향한 에너지를 담아낸 원형질 시기, 당시 서구에서 유행하던 옵아트와 팝아트를 수용하여 고유의 색감을 사용하며 1960년대와 70년대를 잇는 유전질 시기와 1970년대 이후부터 시작된 초기 연필 묘법, 한지와 색채를 재발견한 중기 지그재그 묘법과 손의 흔적이 제거되고 깊고 풍부한 색감이 강조된 후기 색채 묘법 시기의 작품들을 포함한 ‘묘법’ 연작을 발표하였다. 파리 비엔날레 (1963)와 칸국제회화전(1969), 베니스 비엔날레 (1988)등 국제전에 출품, 한국작가 최초로 영국 화이트 큐브에서 개인전을 열었으며 최근 2019년 국립현대미술관 서울관에서 박서보의 70년 화업을 조망하는 회고전 ‘박서보: 지칠 줄 모르는 수행자’과 ‘후기 묘법’ 시리즈를 집중 조명하는 조현화랑에서는 12번쨰 개인전을 성공리에 마쳤다.

Artist Description

Park Seo-Bo played a prophetic role in the development of Korea’s contemporary abstract art and led the transformation of Korea’s contemporary art scene. He was central to the 1956 movement against the National Art Exhibition of Korea and engraved himself into the history of Korean art in 1957 by becoming the first Korean artist to practice Art Informel. His seminal career was always at the forefront of the Dansaekhwa monochrome movement and can be further identified into the Primordialis Period of the ‘60s during which he expressed his energy for life in the aftermaths of the Korean War, the Hereditarius Period which connects his career from the ‘60s to the ‘70s, and the Ecriture series which began after the ‘70s, starting with early-stage graphite pencil Ecriture, developing into mid-stage Zigzag Ecriture where he rediscovered hanji (traditional Korean paper) and colors, and arriving at the late-stage Color Ecriture Period where he eliminated all marks of the artist’s hand and accentuated the intensity and abundance of colors. Park participated in the Paris Biennale (1963) and Cannes International Paintings Festival (1969) and was the very first Korean artist to have a solo show at the White Cube London. Most recently, the remarkable 2019 retrospective “Park Seo Bo: The Untiring Endeavorer,” organized by the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, recapitulated the 70-years-long career of the almost-nonagenarian artistand his 12th solo exhibition at Johyun Gallery ‘Park Seo-Bo which focuses on the late-stage Ecriture series is successfully finished.
