M.S. Park was born on August 11, 1951 in Eum-Sung, Chung-Buk Province, South Korea. It wasn’t until he was in his mid 20’s did he gain a mature style and aesthetic; having previously been a hobbyist painter. Park’s depiction of landscape paintings have routinely focused on the changing of the seasons- a crisp autumn air is intuitively depicted through golden leaves with rich red accents; floating effortlessly down into a bubbling brook or heavily down-trodden and worn pathway.

Sunlit Seclusion is a prime example of the ominous riddle, “If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one around to hear it… Does it make a sound?”  Park has illustrated a perfect time and space landscape continuum; we hear the gurgle of the water, the swaying of the leaves in the trees, feel the heat of the sun peaking through the canopy- yet we feel a chill. But is that all happening somewhere and there is not a soul in sight?  Such a reclusive environment does exist in the mind of M.S. Park.  Littered leaves, radiant glows, geodetic substrates, algae adorned water, and various other grandeur environmental identifications coagulate to form a lavishly illustrious landscape that only M. S. Park could execute.
