TK Mundok is primarily interested in abstract studies or color and shape centered in isolated expanses of otherwise unsullied white. His white space is the untouched paper his spirals of color have landed on. The vital splashes of color in Mundok’s paintings move in serpentine trails, pulsing curvatures of pure color echoed by their paler cousins that course through and around each other, overlapping in clusters. They’ve plonked down in nests on the paper’s surface, but it doesn’t look like they’ll stay where they’ve lit. Like ropes once tight but now slackening, waves of crimson and indigo are ready to burst away from their compatriots and slither from the page.
