Around the year 2000, former visual artist Douglas Park’s practice transformed into less object-oriented storytelling. Recognizing the limitation of the visual arts, Park deliberately sought confrontation with paper, and the possibilities of words as the carrier of what he calls ‘meta-literature’. Armed with an encyclopedic memory and powerful associative thinking, Park brings a whirlwind of connections into each conversation. Ideas, intangible images, references in sentences, full synonyms. Stories become art because the imagination is triggered. Rarely does the listener find support, but he always gets you thinking.
