04 : SHIM MOON PIL BIOGRAPHY
Shim Moon Pil was born in Daegu, South Korea, in 1958. He lives and works in Paris. His artistic approach is based on the alternation between, on one hand - the transparency, sharpness, the introduction of white linearity, the tint area, the colored lines and the plexiglas - and on the other hand the milky atmospheric presence of the white base: indistinct depth, distant and mysterious, which pulls the perception towards a recessed space.

Sometimes, irregularities in the lines are purposely preserved as to avoid an excessive mechanical approach of the composition. These lines, spaced out or close to each other, divide and modulate the tint block, introducing rhythm to the balances of colours and gaps.

«(...) They bring an open and dynamic perception - one which embraces the existing horizontals - to the stability of the rectangular coloured spaces».
Pierre MANUEL 2012, extract from the interview "Reflets et transparences" d’AL/MA N°2.

Moon Pil Shim regularly shows in institutional spaces and private galleries throughout Europe as well as in South Korea. He also works with various architects for whom he makes sculptures that directly relate to their buildings’ aesthetics, to the environment and to the public.
