  • Heekyung Kim builds her brightly colored and beautifully textured relief sculptures from thousands of layers of layered hanji paper, a traditional hand made Korean paper known for its archival properties and soft yet strong qualities. Kim layers and forms sheets of hanji with a binding agent to form expressive and active surfaces that ripple like waves or the petals of a flower.
