by Sui Park
Artist Sui Park is a New York based artist and an born in Seoul, Korea. Sui’s education includes a MDes in Interior Architecture at Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA in Environmental Design at Maryland Institute College of Art. She also received an MFA and a BFA in Fiber Art at Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Korea.
Sui's work involves creating 3-dimensional organic forms in generic and biomorphic shapes. Through these forms, she attempts to express seemingly static yet dynamic characteristics of our evolving lives. While they resemble transitions and transformations of nature, the forms are to capture subtle but continuous changes in our emotions, sentiments, memories, and expectations.
This exhibition, ‘Gift Box’ will showcase site-specific installation of various colorful cable ties in plant-based abstract forms that represent our sentiments, aspirations, and memorable moments in life. The installation repurposes one-time use disposable cable ties into the form of the art demonstrating reuse, recycling, and sustainability. Sui’s black and white ink drawings will also be presented along with the installation.

What our visitors saying about their experience
Your philosophy is wonderful, we need more people to think as you do. I think the Garage Art Center is an important project and much needed in the neighborhood.Anonymous, Bayside
I agree it's wonderful to be able to support other artists. At the Garage Art Center, we could have a talk for the community about the joy of not only collecting art but giving it as a special gift. Not about commercialism, but about how it can affect your life.Anonymous, Jackson Heights
I'm thrilled to be part of what you are doing. I have for years, wished for a local community for artists.Anonymous, Bayside
This is what I always dreamed about. I used to think about the artists, writers, and musicians would gather and discuss, share, and collaborate. Thank you so much for making this happen with your special vision!Anonymous
