Wall Installations of Ran Hwang 2

Dreaming of Joy (2), 6 panel, Buttons, Pins, by Ran Hwang 2008

Ran Hwang, a Korean-born artist currently based in Brooklyn, creates wall installations using ordinary objects from the fashion industry. She describes her approach:
I create large icons such as a Buddha or a traditional vase, using materials from the fashion industry. The process of building large installations is time consuming and repetitive and it requires manual effort which provides a form of self-meditation. I hammer thousands of pins into a wall like a monk who, facing the wall, practices Zen.
Ran combines her creative vision with a meticulous process to transform ordinary objects into whimsical jewel-like creations.
