South Korean Sculptor - Seung - Mo - Park

Seung Mo Park is a sculptor who works with wire screen. The technique is as intriguing as it is meticulous. Images are projected onto the wire which is layered several inches thick. He then snips away
painstakingly to 'draw' the image into the 'canvas'.

the wire is carefully snipped away to create the negative and positive

The result is three dimensional imagery which engages the viewer with its ethereal, ghostly qualities.

This has resolved one of my own issues within my printmaking. I have been searching for an interesting matrix to print on and I am going to test out whether this is possible. There will be many variables so it may not work, however I figure if we all gave up at this point nothing new would be tried and tested !
