Sui Park: PomPom
Sui Park’s PomPom is a series of vibrant, brilliantly colored sculptures that appear magically suspended among a cluster of blue trees located on the Museum grounds. The sculptures visually pop like fireworks, evoking celebrations, exuberant moments, and cheerful memories. Park creates the dynamic artworks by meticulously weaving and connecting hand painted industrial cable ties, transforming them into organic and biomorphic forms. Inspired by both the natural world and the human experience, Park seeks to capture and encapsulate subtle but continuous changes in the evolution of emotions, memories, thoughts, and expectations.
A New York based artist born in Seoul, Korea, Park exhibits internationally and holds a BFA in Environmental Design from the Maryland Institute College of Art and an MDes in Interior Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design as well as an MFA and BFA in Fiber Arts at Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Korea.
