Park Ki Pyung, a Seoul-based sculptor, and student, creates haphazardly finished sculptures that are heavily inspired by his personal reflections about existentialism. The artist transforms resin and steel into human forms that are hauntingly real and somewhat dealing an invisible personal struggle.
The human sculptures were purposely made by Park to look unfinished and hollow “to describe the condition of emptiness.” Some resemble people in deep thought and musing while others convey a kind of pain that audience have the freedom to give their own personal interpretation of. When forming the sculptures’ faces, Park intended to exclude certain physical attributes so that he “can delete unique characteristics of each person.”
Park adds, “I describe images of the ancient battle scene to show violence against self.” You can check his other sculptures on his Instagram page. Meanwhile, here are a few photos from his recent exhibit.
