The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (17 July–11 December) shows how Park Dae Sung has put a contemporary spin on the traditional art of ink-and-wash painting, The Korean artist’s works often reimagine the landscapes typically portrayed by Chinese and Korean ink masters. Among the highlights are Diamond Mountain (2004), a depiction of the Korean Peninsula’s best-known mountain ranges from a disorienting bird’s-eye view. Presenting a broad range of works by the artists, the exhibition also includes six of Park’s large-scale works alongside two smaller pieces, as well as pieces such as Snow at Bulguk Temple (1996), in which the artist uses the natural luminescence of hanji, Korean mulberry paper, to capture the whiteness of the snow.
