The Woodwork of Cha Jong-Rye

Korean sculptor Cha Jong-Rye works with wood as if it were clay or paint. She layers and sands hundreds of delicate wood pieces to create pockmarked canvases, threatening beds of thorns, or wall-sized recreations of crumpled cloth napkins. Jong-Rye completed her graduate work at Ewha Women’s University in Seoul in 1996 and has had numerous group exhibits and five solo shows, her latest at the Sungkok Art Museum. I am completely hypnotized by these sculptures and in total awe of the painstaking craft on display here. If you like this, you might also enjoy the work of Ben Butler.
