A new art gallery has recently opened in the West End of London, The House of Fine Art (or HOFA for short). I went along there recently and saw these works by Ilhwa Kim. Each little piece of mulberry paper is hand dyed and rolled up into a “seed”. some contain messages (never to be read) giving each picture hidden stories. The process is highly labour intensive and could be viewed as obsessional – my take on it is that it is a meditative, almost ritualistic activity, creating worlds and landscapes to be viewed initially from above but then explored from any direction. You can easily lose yourself in these pieces.
