Kathy Park, a painter originally from Seoul, Korea, discovered her passion for the arts at a young age while receiving training in visual arts and music. After immigrating to the United States, she continued cultivating her artistic skills and pursuing her passion by studying painting and drawing at Tyler School of the Art, Temple University in Pennsylvania.
Her spirituality and her life challenges deeply influence Kathy's artistic journey. Her works serve as a poetic exploration of self-discovery and the search for identity, reflecting the truth that unfolds as her journey matures.
While Kathy has dabbled in various art forms, including digital art, book illustrations, stage props, and teaching, her primary focus has always been painting. Her artworks have been featured in several group shows and competitions, showcasing her talent and unique artistic vision. She dedicates her time to her artistic practice while also serving as an art instructor at Art Studio Pillar in Corona, California.
Driven by a lifelong fascination with the intersection of science and art, Kathy is deeply intrigued by the concept of reality. She delves into the notion that what is tangible is undeniably real, but a reality exists beyond what can be seen. Each individual's perception of reality is shaped and transformed into a unique and organic concept within their heart as they navigate the relationship between the tangible and intangible. In her series of works, viewers will encounter recurring images of scapegoats, serving as symbols of connection between good and evil, the seen and unseen. As these scapegoats wander in and out of our minds, they force us to define our own reality and understand our existence's complexities.
