This is not one of Park's pieces from Art Basel but another from the M55 website.

Kenneth Park was one of the last people I spoke with but one of the only ones I spoke to on video, at length. I suppose three or four minutes on video is not really "at length." He works out of Long Island, NY. There were three pieces of his work at the ScopeFair at Art Basel Miami 2010. He has plans for some even more ambitions work and he talked about and showed the preliminary work for what is coming.
Park discussed his upcoming work further saying that in addition to--or perhaps instead of--being called a commentary it could be seen as a reversal. The project has not been fully formulated and certainly not finalized. It is going to take place and Park is eager to get back into the studio. He says his overall work has been extensively influenced by his proximity to so many great works of abstract expressionism in New York City (De Kooning, Gorky et al).
This is my shaky-handed look at Kenneth Park's work at Art Basel. These are from Youtube due to some technical difficulties.
