Won Choi Sculpture


"Won Choi may just constitute a one-person surrealist revival -- she employs the biomorphic vocabulary of Jean Arp and Wassily Kandinsky to arrive at medium-scale sculptures that puddle, drip and run, and even march, all for the sake of joyfully nightmarish visions in pristine white.Although her work may seem quite complicated, the spirit of the work is very simple, light and pleasant. There is nothing tortured or painful. They are lyrical and invite the viewers' imagination and participation."

~ New York critic Geritt Henry ~
