Samples of my work
My subject matter is the human body and how we feel inside our inner spaces. Through the isolating times of the pandemic, I have been fascinated with the way people build mental barriers as protection from their surroundings. These barriers can be fragile and transparent, yet extremely confining. With these recent works I am exploring these themes and sensations in my own way. I use traditional Korean paper handmade from mulberry trees, which I melt and form in body shapes. This specific type of paper is malleable initially, but sturdy when hardened, making it ideal for creating forms in my works.
