Ji Suk Baek
Ji Suk Baek was born in South Korea in 1966. The large format of canvases fully corresponds to her te,perament, to her dedicated, careful but at the same time excepionally vigorus, fast and strong gestural mastering of the format as numerous pictorial layers and deep perspectives of the painting. In the foreground there will sometimes be a nicely reduced actual image of nature with a recognisable genesis of the subject (winter-woods), in which the artist brings the real experience of peace and the complete silence of the landscape. In most of her latest canvases Yi Baek Suk creates compositions that are close to the tradition of lyrical abstraction, wich accentuated gestures of vertical brush strokes, while often implementing the experience of calligraphy.
