JEE HYE KWON : DIGILOG
June 10, 2017 – August 10, 2017
Jee Hye Kwon creates sculptural jewels that combine architectural, industrial and organic forms which are derived from the digital and analog world.
“I have been contemplating digital and analog technology and how I could interpret this concept in my jewelry, merging these elements with my passion for the natural world.
For this collection of work I juxtaposed angular hard-edged industrial lines with organic forms reminiscent of barnacles.
I hand carved these round encrusted forms in wax and then cast them in copper. The finished castings were too slick so I reworked, cut, etched and sanded each copper element, soldering them to my industrial structures, designed to sway and move with the wearer.” – Jee Hye Kwon
