Jinie Park creates ethereal works on canvas with thinly layered, translucent washes of paint. Through her abstraction she investigates and engages with the history and conventions of painting, applying paint on all sides of her canvas. Born in Seoul, South Korea in 1987, Park received a BFA in Painting at Seoul National University (Seoul, South Korea) in 2011 and an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore, MD) in 2015. Her work has been shown in 2014 at the Louisiana Biennial Juried Exhibition, School of Design at Louisiana Tech University (Ruston, LA) and in 2010 in a juried exhibition at Weiser Gallery, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA). Park was awarded the Henry Walters Traveling Fellowship in 2015 and the LeRoy E. Hoffberger Scholarship from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2013. In 2009 she was awarded the Choi Wook-Kyung Prize from Seoul National University. In 2016 Park received the Perez Art Museum Miami Picks Award during PULSE Miami Beach.
