You might have experienced some difficulty accessing DAM over the last couple of days as we migrated to a new server and did a few updates on the back end.The upgrade is complete but there may still be a hiccup or two. If you find that things aren’t acting normally please let me know. Thanks for your patience.
At first glance I thought that the Cha Jong Rye’s sculptures were carved from wood, however closer inspection (and the video below) show that what she does is cut shapes from wood, stack and layer the shapes, then sand meticulously to transform the layers into fluid works of art that speak to me of graceful movement.
The first few minutes of the video below shows the South Korean artist at work – you can see some of her process and it is fascinating. You also get to see a good portion of her complete body of work and catch a glimpse of how they install one of the large-scale wall pieces.
