Zao Wou-Ki is a master poswar abstract painter, but to limit his artistic identity to a single genre would fail to recognize the inclusive nature of his artistic style. He built his own universe defined by his split identity while he was in constant communication with the inflences around him. These qualities characterize his work as a conversation between two parts of Zao’s identity. What emerges from this dialogue is a spectacular, thought provoking collection of masterpieces which, when curated together, defines what it means to be limitless.
A rise of an abstract art was not a sole phenomenon in the western hemisphere. The Dansaekhwa movement, which emerged after the seize-fire agreement was set for the Korean War in 1953, stemmed from a wish to reconstruct an artistic pride that artists had lost during the war.
