Wonju Seo is a Korean-American artist whose primary medium for the past twelve years has been textiles, through which Ms. Seo has explored the bold and abstract color sensibilities of traditional Korean patchwork known as pojagi. Pojagi is a utilitarian Korean craft form that dates back over a thousand years. Stitched together by common women from remaindered scraps of fine silk, ramie, and hemp, pojagi were traditionally used to cover tables and to wrap up and transport small household objects. Inspired by traditional Korean temple door patterns, Ms. Seo has created in this large scale installation a folded patchwork that seamlessly blends the Korean patchwork traditions and origami techniques.( Jinyoung Jin, Director of Cultural Programs at Charles B. Wang Center, Stony Brook University, NY)
