Metal work

Jounghye Park

In an era when everything is moving fast there is an artist who wishes to move slowly. Jounghye Park applies a making process that is time consuming and laborious. She uses the heat setting method on colored fabric. She is inspired by plants and insects. Her ideas transform into wearable jewelry from necklaces to brooches. She studied metal craft at Kookmin University, attaining both undergraduate and graduate degrees. She then traveled to work in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Until now she has held 5 solo exhibitions. Her work has been shown in leading galleries in Seoul, Korea additionally as in countries such as the Netherlands, USA, France and more. In this particular exhibition, her work has been featured as vegetables and summer greens to evoke the sense of taste through organic shapes and color.
