This catalogue is published with an exhibition of work by Korean artist Yun Hyong-keun at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul. One of the leading figures of the Dansaekhwa art movement, Hyong-keun’s paintings are inspired by nature, combining a palette of umber and ultramarine (the colours of earth and water) to create rectilinear compositions which are reminiscent of traditional ink-wash paintings. The investigation into flatness, materiality, and meditation in art-making is a consistent focus of his work, and his paintings characterise the elements of tactility, spirituality, and performance common to first-generation Dansaekwha artists.
