New York, NY, United States

I am a Korean artist based in New York City. My work is informed by fashion materials- materials that I worked with in the Garment District in New York when I first moved there. I hammer hundreds, sometimes thousands of pins through plexiglas and secure a button to make designs- blossoms, phoenixes, and architectural landmarks such as temples and palaces. My work is extremely time consuming but I find it meditative to have this process of art making.
