Public can meet the artists during the monthly gallery stroll “The Yuns’ tools are simple. They use paper pulp that is ground from the bark, water and screens to press the paper.” The Yuns pay farmers in South Korea to keep the dac trees on their farms and harvest the bark each year. “They grind the bark by hand, and they create their own non toxic inks that combine organic and inorganic components,” Bloch said. “The only time they’ll use a brush is to sign their names. They will also mark each work with a pigmented thumbprint.” Bloch enjoys watching the artists work together. “They work intuitively,” he said. “One of them may take the lead on one project, and the other will lead another.” The paperworks are more akin to tapestries, according to Bloch. “What’s great about them is that in a gallery or home setting these works in- SCOTT IWASAKI The Park Record Art lovers who embark on this month’s Park City Gallery Association gallery stroll on Friday will have the chance to witness Hanji, the ancient practice of Korean paper art, at the Thomas Anthony Gallery.

So all the collector has to do is dust them off occasionally.” Bloch, an art dealer who has represented the Yuns for more than 20 years, said he first noticed their work while visiting a gallery in Portland, Oregon. “It hit me in the solar plexus, because it was so beautiful,” he said. “While my wife and I didn’t understand the medium,l we knew it was beautiful work.” The gallery’s owner introduced Bloch to the Yuns, who are originally from Daegu, South Korea. “I learned that they are two of the most genuine and sweetest people I have ever met,” he said. “The artists attended Keimyung Please see Korean, C-12 Book sale helps cover Park City Library needs Annual event, which runs Sept. 1-3, relies on volunteers, donors SCOTT IWASAKI The Park Record PETER YARROW AT THE EGYPTIAN THEATRE free and open to the public.
