PAPER by Jae Ko
sept 10 thru oct 30
reception with the artist friday sept 10
Jae Ko's sensuous forms and rich colors are immediately inviting. Her exquisite use of delicate materials to create powerful pieces is unmatched. Up close the detailed intricacy of the work is revealed in layer after layer of hand-rolled paper, adhered together and dyed. The resulting patterns produce a meditative rhythm in the work while the time consuming, introspective process creates abstract forms that are both a nod to Ko’s Korean heritage as well as a transformation of that tradition into something totally new, fresh and contemporary.
