PARK Dong Chan (박동찬) Artist Biography

Artist Statement


“There is not a leaf in your painting. Any particular reason?” There was a viewer who had been standing in front of my work for a while and finally asked me this question when he noticed that I am the one who painted it. Obviously it is the order of nature to see bare trees in the winter, but his question reminded me of what my friend said to me the other day. “Your painting is just like our lives”.


“Trees also go through a life cycle similar to ours. They provide leafy shade in the summer, and start to shed leaves by themselves when temperatures cool down and shade is no longer needed. Nevertheless, they just keep standing still as if nothing ever happened. The trees remain robust even in the winter, so I deliberately added powerful lines and loud colors to make them look less desolated,” I said.


Platanus trees, the subject of my paintings for 2019, arouse the reminiscence of the good old days that I dimly recollect now. Maybe I am not the only one who could feel this kind of emotion in Platanus trees.

There are not so many people who pay attention to the Platanus trees commonly planted along the streets. Maybe people just think that they are just bothersome trees which only spread pollen.


Do you know the dream? When I ask you this, Platanus, your head is already soaked in a clear blue sky.

You do not know how to give your heart, but Platanus, you provide shade as you are with me.
