박서보(b. 1931) 단색화 운동의 지반을 다진 대표 작가 중 한 명으로한국 현대 미술 발전에 빼놓을 수 없는 중추적 인물이다그는 지난 반세기 동안 한국 추상미술 특유의 정신성 및 초월적 세계를 포용하는 회화적 언어를 발전시켰다특히 박서보의 작품 세계는 그의 물리적 움직임이 만들어낸 자연적 에너지 뿐만 아니라 그림은 치유의 도구가 되어야 한다라는 신념을 절실히 담고있다.  그 중 <묘법시리즈는 이러한 특성을 극명하게 반영한 것으로 잘 알려져 있다. 1950년대 후반에서 1960년대 사이 앵포르멜의 영향으로 발표된 <원형질>을 포함하여, <유전질>, <허상시리즈 또한 그의 미학을 중심으로 끊임없이 발전된 중요한 결실이며동시에 <묘법탄생의 근본적인 시금석이기도 하다1960년대 후반에 들어 첫 선보인 <묘법시리즈는 작가의 단순하면서도 역동적인 제스처를 통해 시간공간매체 사이의 관계를 끊임없이 제시했다작품 초기에는 안료가 덜 마른 캔버스 표면 위에 연필이나 철필로 선들을 반복적으로 긋는 행위를 지향했으며이후 전통한지를 적극적으로 수용했다이는 한국의 정신성을 반영할 뿐만 아니라그의 자기성찰적인 방법론을 대변하는 상징적인 미디엄이기도 하다이후 1990년대 후기 <묘법>부터는 평면 공간 위에 자막대기와 같은 일상 도구로3차원적인 고랑을 형성하고깊고 강렬한 색채를 입히는 것으로 발전한다박서보는 이 급진적인 변화 속에서도 단색화 고유의 순수성을 강조하며작품을 향한 명상적 접근과 수행적 행위를 한결같이 지속하는 힘을 보여주었다.  

 

As a pivotal figure in Korean contemporary art, Seo-bo Park (b. 1931) is internationally recognized as one of the leading artists of “Dansaekhwa,” the Korean monochrome movement which emerged in the early 1970s. Over the last 50 years, Park has prolifically developed his distinctive language that embraces the spiritual and transcendental aspects of Korean abstract painting. Park’s oeuvre not only displays his energy but also his belief that “picture must be an instrument of healing.” While the Ecriture series is his most acclaimed works today, there are other notable outputs that resulted from his aesthetics and continuous experiments, including PrimordialisHereditarius, and Illusion series, all of which were developed between the late 1950s and 1960s. 

 

The Ecriture paintings were initially created in the late 1960s and were characterized by simple, yet dramatic gestures over the surface that displayed the delicate relationship between time, space, and material. Park’s earlier works were created using repeated pencil lines, still-wet surface, and hanji, traditional Korean paper, which was later used and one of Park’s iconic mediums that not only reflected the Korean spirituality but also his introspective methodology. Later in the 1990s, Park expanded his pictorial techniques of Ecriture using everyday tools including rulers, sticks, and vibrant colors while continuing his quest for simplicity and deep meditative approaches.
