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.
During the 90-minute workshop at the gallery, artist Sui Park will demonstrate various ways of making sculptures using cable ties. Participants will have a chance to explore and create their own art work then take the finished piece home.
