Artist Jung Eun Park has created an exquisite floating world of fantastical fiber fauna for Wavehill's Sunroom Project Space.
"Jung Eun Park transforms the intimate space of the Sunroom with a collection of delicately molded objects that she calls “a flock of new fauna.” Hinged somewhere between painting and sculpture, these hand-embossed paper shapes are crafted with meticulous detail. Park’s inventive process involves carefully painting and drawing upon sheets of paper before treating them with varnish and stitching them into evocative shapes. The resulting forms are distinctly ethereal. Hung on thin line and suspended in mid-air, they are animated by the light that streams in through the Sunroom windows and the juxtaposition offered by the expansive views of Wave Hill’s grounds."
'Paper Menagerie' is on view at Wavehill until April 20, 2008.
