Curator's Eye

Inspired by her traditional upbringing in rural South Korea, Jung Chaehee uses her artistic practice to reconnect with ancient customs and the bounty of the natural world. She creates rich and earthy compositions by making use of traditional materials such as Ottchil, wood and gold leaf. Dominated by intricate examinations of organic forms, Chaehee’s work showcases to the viewer the complexity and majesty of nature. An excellent consideration for those looking to acquire artists who draw on their own cultural traditions.
