<A> is one of the series of paintings exhibited at Chaerin Park's solo exhibition <History>, 2019.
The painting comes in a matte white aluminum frame.
There's a primordial, eternal flow of life underneath every human experience and the whole history on earth. This flow connects all beings and their histories and evokes the feeling of togetherness. We cannot enter this realm with the language of logics and thoughts. When we return to our bodies, sensations, we can then get reconnected with this flow. Myths, poetry and music, colors and shapes soften our heart, letting us see the deeper realm of the world. Even though on the surface level, we only seem to reside in a world of waves where everything changes every fraction of a second, this primordial force is always here and now with or without us realizing it.
Every experience arises and passes away like a flash of light leaving traces in versatile colors and shapes.
Everything is here and now.
