Artist Profile: Soonae Tark
I work systematically with flat color surfaces that convey piles of shapes. These piles demonstrate balance, imbalance, repetition and continuity depending on the weight of the color. Rather than a representation of the external, my work is an expression of my existence. As one day follows another, I repeat the same action over and over much like placing a stone on a mountaintop cairn.
One day, I sat and looked at a framed drawing next to me in my studio. It came up my mind “why don’t I work directly on the glass?” So I tried it out on some plexiglas. I enjoyed it! It was so much fun. I am developing a series of work on plexiglas. I play with color and form with rigid lines to explore materials with meticulous care. I like to challenge myself through daily practice.
