My artwork is based on the awe-inspiring beauty of nature.
In nature, there are no straight lines.
Starting from small dots, lines, circles and planes -
these shapes were developed and altered to become volumetric curves forming circular beads.
The main materials for my artwork was made from a paper dough soaked in water.
The handmade paper mache beads were painted with an Asian black ink (muk)
with various dots of acrylic paint weaved by a wire.
Like water taken in by an organism and metamorphosed into significant
and functional genes, my artwork reflect this mutation process of a gene.
Imagine the gene spreading to the body which influences the mind as well.
Throughout your mind and body, meditation and optimism are being converted into electric thoughts and ideas. I am currently creating my own expressively mutated genes every single moment of my life.

Intérieur coréen : oeuvres de In-Sook SonThis exhibition catalog presents the work of the contemporary Korean artist, In-Sook Son, for the first time outside of Korea. It includes textile art, the hanbok (traditional dress), court costumes, but also Pojagi (wrapping cloth), and screens.
Rapt in Colour by Clare Roberts; Huh Dong-Hwa (Editor)Traditional culture is relevant to both the present and the future. This book provides an insight into the development of fashion, design and culture during the reign of the Choson Dynasty (1392-1910) in Korea. The traditional Korean wrapping cloths stand as a particular testimony to the creative talents of unknown Korean women. Each design is unique and of its time, yet many of the wrapping cloths also bring to mind images of modern abstract art. It is through their design that these objects can communicate with people from other cultures across time.
