South Korean artist Ilhwa Kim is acclaimed for her intricate compositions made of tens of thousands of rolled, hand-dyed mulberry paper pieces. Kim calls the individual rolls “seeds” and considers them microcosms within her larger cosmographies. She has become known for these three-dimensional works, finding immediate success in her native South Korea. One year after receiving her MFA in Oriental Painting from Hongik University in Seoul, she had her first solo exhibition at the Seongnam Arts Center in 1997. Kim’s series “Seed Universe” has been exhibited in solo shows across Asia and the UK, as well as in Art Miami.
