These sculptures are precious hard oak, made by artist Yoo Hyun. Yoo Hyun’s art is educated by his former career in landscape architecture. With his sculptures, Yoo wanted to convey the feelings of between buildings in a vast city. He feels tight and compressed, but suddenly feels a burst of freedom when he sees a clear view. Sometimes, he feels tears spring to his eyes. To Yoo, the sculptures are like a cityscape blurred by tears and the patterns of the city are repeated in a zig zag. He’s named his Zig Zag sculptures, “Opacity” and is a visual representation of a very specific feeling and moment for the artist.  "Like a drop of water in paint, it's getting wet and spreading."

Care: Dust when needed. Handle with care.

Yoo Hyun Sculpture brancusi

The memories and emotions from his childhood be absorbed into his work.

Wood sculpture artists Yoo Hyun studied landscape design (as his father did). He loves antique and vintage furniture, so he gravitated towards (and fell in love with) the trees and wood as a material. In 2019, he left his landscape design career and started making furniture. After only a year building furniture, he switched to sculpture. In furniture design, he felt constrained within the parameters and designs of clients. With sculpture, he can create purely alone, which makes his work feel fun. It’s been three years since he started his sculpture practice, and he most enjoys the process of finding wood for his sculptures. His studio is an hour outside of Seoul in his gutted childhood home –– which makes many of the memories and emotions from his childhood be absorbed into his work.
