Jeong Han Yun

Handmade Paper
Paper Play 12-107

One of two new works arriving at the gallery this week. Jeong Han Yun and his wife Choon Hyang Yun are South Korean artists now living in the US. They are instrumental in the development of the new techniques of traditional paper-making.  Their fusion of Asian and Western paper making techniques result in rich, textural works of vibrant color. The material of Jeong and Choon's work is most often extracted from the bark and flowers of the ancient Southeast Asian Dak tree.
