About Yoorim Erin Park
Yoorim Erin Park (b. 1986) is a mixed media artist living and working in New York. Her body of work deals with conflicting states of time: static and active.
"The time in my work is not oriented to a specific time, rather floating in a space of co-existence. These conflicting states, “static and active” are addressed in a single frame by depicting historical symbols from the past on the same plane as today’s digitally enhanced sources. By juxtaposing these two time states, I am interested in reconstructing time to reconnect our past and present."
Through the manipulation of various contemporary graphic images such as geometric and graphic patterns, Park's works result in a conflict phenomenon - where history collides with digital era, allowing them to interact with one another and create a conversation to be deciphered by the viewers.
"I create a constant flux between calm and disorder, as well as quiet and chaotic, serious and witty; hoping to engage the viewers to gain a sense of stillness of histories while raising awareness of today’s actively changing digital culture."
