One-of-a-kind Joomchi paper painting/ 3-layered artwork. Each layer is all handmade and dyed and went through Joomchi process. *Joomchi is the unique Korean traditional way of making textured and painterly imagery on handmade paper just by using water. It creates strong, textural, and painterly surfaces. Texture, shadow, and movement are a huge part of my artworks, so instead of framing them which limits all these effects, I prefer hanging these works without frame. I treated surfaces to be UV- and moisture-resistant and made a special hanging device which comes with the artwork. I would recommend that these works are hung avoiding direct sunlight or a very moist area. When the breeze come in and the person walks by, it gently moves like it is breathing in the space and with the person who owns it. I regard this interaction as 'dialogue between and moving and stillness.' When the light hits the work, it will create layers of shadow which add depth and really accentuate the texture and the work itself.
