Wall Installations of Ran Hwang

Wall Installations of Ran Hwang

posted in: Art, featured art | 2
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.

  1. so innovative, love the fact that from a distance you have no idea how it’s done, up close one can’t imagine! there are so many pieces. how much time it must have taken to do it all, from conception to finish, what determination!
