Korean Traditional Door Patterns 2023
- Lasercut on bass wood
- Size: 3.5 x 7.5 x 1.5” / Edition of 5 (two volume edition)
The beauty of Korea’s traditional doors,
windows and its patterns are presented in this work
in the form of a book,
inspired by my father, an intangible cultural heritage in Korea.
The diverse traditional patterns each have different meanings to them,
and this art piece is a selected collection of those good fortune made
into one book.
In Korea, there is no distinction in the traditional door and window,
only its purpose and that is expressed in the two sets of the book.
The vertical binding book represent Korea’s traditional doors
whereas the horizontal binding book represent windows.
The patterns are displayed in two forms,
for a complete and a closer detailed view.
