Between Two Lights

In the summer of 2018, Shinyoung Park participated in a research program on nocturnal wildlife in Canada. The experience awakened Park's senses to nature & the nocturnal that Park felt had been dulled from the toll of city life.

Between Two Lights is a series of monotypes visualizing Park's sensory memories that trace the night. Night shades everything in vague state. Instead of losing sight we are sensitive enough to react to the surroundings. Each monotype presents the liveliness of the night, in the cycle of nature. A dead moth laying its eggs, a deer with a breaking egg and a shellfish, fireflies in the dark lake, and a rainbow with bats.

For Park, the night is creative; it is a void that sparks the imagination. Park creates visual metaphors to raise our senses; the consciousness of being is determined by our experience with our surroundings.
