About This Book

Stylistically, the landscapes of Jongsuk Yoon (b. Onyang, Korea, 1965; lives and works in Düsseldorf) suggest a new Abstract Expressionism. Beneath the agitated pictorial surface and the seemingly chaotic lines, her abstract and expressive paintings and drawings always contain a kernel of silence and deliberate gentleness. Seemingly naïve renditions of steep mountains, paths, hats, animals, and pavilions invoke the artist’s Asian roots and recall her childhood in Korea. The beholder contemplating these “mind landscapes,” in which dreams and experiences kaleidoscopically condense in forever new images, will look in vain for a larger meaning, a story. Yoon’s work instead interweaves the European painterly tradition with the formal vocabulary and aesthetic sensibility of Asian art. She is especially interested in man’s position between nature and culture and how art can represent his relationship with both. With essays by Hendrik Bündge, Anne Buschhoff, Eunju Choi, Robert Fleck, Harald Kunde, Gunda Luyken, Hans-Werner Schmidt, and Christina Végh as well as a conversation between Beate Reifenscheid and the artist.
