Dansaekhwa trio

Translated as ‘monochrome’, Dansaekhwa refers to a radical style of minimal painting that emerged in South Korea in the 1970s, characterised by reductive, meditative compositions and a neutral colour palette.

Works by masters Chung Sang-Hwa, Ha Chong-Hyun, Kwon Young-Woo, Yun Hyong-Keun, Lee Ufan and Park Seo-Bo will be on display. With a strong aesthetic ideal focused on the unity between artist and nature, each artist of the Dansaekhwa movement forged a new and refined approach to repetition and mark making. Early practitioners were considered particularly ground breaking for the use of non-traditional materials not commonly associated with art.

The Arts Club curators bring together a selection of rare master works from this art movement following an extraordinary surge of recognition in these underappreciated artists among art world audiences.
