June 20, 2018 -- MEMBERS’ SHOW (& Koenigsberg Student Awardee announced)
Sui Park, an artist and interior architect based in New York, was born in Seoul, Korea.
“My work involves creating 3-dimensional organic forms, mostly in generic and biomorphic shapes,” she says. She uses mass-produced industrial materials that are “non-durable, disposable, trivial, inexpensive, and easily consumed”—e.g., monofilament and cable ties. Her forms suggest “transitions and transformations of nature,” but are also meant “to capture subtle but continuous changes in our emotions, sentiments, memories and expectations.”
Park had two solo exhibitions in New York in 2016: Playing with Perception at the Denise Bibro Fine Art Gallery in Chelsea and Garden of Humans at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn. More than 70 exhibitions in which she has participated include Dismantle the Core at Elaine L Jacob Gallery, Wayne State University, Detroit, 2017. Her sculpture SuiTable was acquired by Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon in Eugene. Her work has been published in print magazines including the National Basketry Organization Quarterly Review, Niche, and Textile Plus; she has received recognition in the Surface Design Association’s blog and numerous other online publications.
Sui Park was awarded an MDes in Interior Architecture at Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA in Environmental Design at Maryland Institute College of Art. She also earned an MFA and a BFA in Fiber Art at Ewha Womans University in Seoul.
