Paik's art is grand, not only in its size which is
monumental, but also in its conception. Paik's visionary production
spans great lengths crossing tremendous heights to offer us
her magical galaxies overlaid with cathedral plans from the
medieval world. Her sacred geometry depicting harmonious proportions
and cosmologic parameters in mathematical ratios is parallel
to the cultural universal condition. Sacred geometry such
as that found in Paik's expansive surfaces covered with stars
was employed in religious architecture. Medieval churches
and temples incorporated symbolic geometry, basing it on the
design of the cross or mandala. In Cosmology the world can
be seen in terms of cosmic geometry as did Johannes Kepler.
The natural world also can be discussed in geometric terms
as seen by snowflakes, or honeycombs. In fact these geometric/natural
correspondences can be considered paradigms of cosmic significance.
Paik's tremendous canvases transport the viewer on a mystical
journey through which he discovers new dimensions not always
recognizable. Pythagorean mathematics and Sufi geometry mix
to produce realms that surround the viewer leaving him disoriented
and in total awe. Paik's huge universe envelopes the viewer,
caressing and welcoming him into a sea of alchemy.
