Cha Jongrye




Part of events on ArtRabbit in: London

Born in Daejeon, Korea and the recipient of an MFA in Sculpture from Ewha Women's University in 1996, sculptor Cha Jongrye's meticulously crafted works have been featured in exhibitions and collections worldwide. Using wood as her chosen medium, Cha constructs seamlessly intricate wooden landscapes by sanding and layering hundreds of delicate wood boards. Her process is intentionally unintentional; rather than executing a predetermined design, she allows herself to discover images in the fluidity of arranging and rearranging the uniquely hand-shaped blocks. The result is a richly textured three-dimensional canvas upon which light and shadow dance, transforming the once-recognisable wood material into entirely abstracted landscapes reminiscent of wrinkled linen, rolling sand dunes or rippling water.
