Pelham Art Center is proud to announce the new public artwork Floating Imagery in our courtyard by Sui Park. The work consists of five exciting creations that hang, lay and stand in different areas in the courtyard and around the art center.
Sui Park is an award winning New York based artist born in Seoul, Korea. Her work involves creating 3-dimensional flexible organic forms from mass produced industial materials like monofilament and cable ties. While these biomorphic forms resemble transitions and transformations of nature, they also capture subtle changes and evolution of emotions, memories and expectations.
The materials used are non-durable, disposable, trivial and easily consumed. While weaving and connecting these pieces Sui finds ways to make them organic visualizations that create lasting moments, evoking and encapuslating thought. In nature Sui finds what might be overlooked and invisible. The will take these findings and present it in an abstract and porous work that can be filled with our moments and discoveries.
