Obangsaek: Vermilion

Soluna Fine Art is pleased to present Obangsaek: Vermilion, an in-depth exploration of the connections between the colour vermilion and the Korean culture. The gallery will exhibit five artists from Korea: Jeong Myoung Jo, Park Jisook, Uzine Park, Park Yoon-Kyung, and Song Kwangik. Vary in age, background and medium, the artists apply the colour vermilion into their works with different intentions and motives. Obangsaek: Vermilion starts from 21 August to 19 September.


This exhibition is part of the Obangsaek Series, a series of five exhibitions aim to explore and analyze art works constructed with the Five-Orientation-Colour, the traditional Korean colour spectrum (the Five-Orientation-Colour), often seen in folk arts and traditional textile patterns, and represents the Yin- Yang and Five Elements theories. It is also a continuation of this year’s first program Obangsaek: Indigo. The colour indigo or blue is associated with the element of wood and the direction east. In the Korean flag, this colour symbolizes “Yin”, the feminine energy. Indigo/blue is balanced by red in the Korean flag. While indigo/ blue represents its opposite, silence and calming energy, vermilion/ red represents the passionate energy of life. According to Korean tradition, the colour red associates with the south, fire, and “Yang”. With its powerful yang energy, vermillion is believed to ward off evil spirits and dictate the lives of living things. Throughout this collection, the works of art embody the essence of the colour vermillion: creation, passion, and love.
