Materials for the Arts is pleased to present “A Kaleidoscope of Lines/ Forms/ Patterns” by MFTA Artist-in-Residence Sui Park. Park is a New York-based artist born in Seoul, Korea. Her work involves creating 3-dimensional organic forms in biomorphic shapes that are both illusory and mystical.Park’s creations are often made with mass-produced industrial materials, in particular, Monofilament cable sleeving and zip ties.  In “A Kaleidoscope of Lines/ Forms/ Patterns,” Park will present her past work “PomPom” alongside new creations made from materials found at MFTA’s warehouse.
