Designers Rimm Chae
Sculptural painting or gem painting that captures the colors of nature and the passage of time.
Rimm Chae experiments with her own artistic possibilities, utilizing Ottchil (natural lacquer) whose shades of color are different depending on temperature, humidity, and the flow of time and mother-of-pearl that comes into being after a time of perseverance. This experimental demeanor is firmly based on her respect for nature and time. Her works involving different genres such as jewelry, painting, and spatial drawing represent the passage of time like the process of a tree growing or flowers blooming rather than any preexisting sculptural technique. She develops her works in three dimensions, going through several courses of welding in which brass lines become flowers or twigs.
