Sui Park
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick

Media:Sculptural;
Genre:Organic;


ARTIST STATEMENT: My work involves creating 3-dimensional flexible organic forms of a comfortable ambiance that is yet dynamic and possibly mystical or illusionary. It is an abstract representation of objects or concepts that recreates our surroundings. It can be interpreted in various ways including landscapes, living organisms, social ideas or values, anything that we accept as given that they exist. Through my work, I try to create an opportunity for audiences to see, think and most of all feel our surroundings from various perspectives.
