Gallery: Cha Jong-Rye's Woodworked Landscapes


When we spotted Korean sculptor Cha Jong-Rye‘s work over at Colossal, we were immediately entranced. To create these large-scale wall sculptures, she meticulously sculpts and sands hundreds of unique pieces of wood, fitting them together to build tableaus that look like fantasy-world mountain ranges, crumpled canvases, or aerial landscapes. The pieces are gorgeous, mind-bending and almost threatening all at once, wooden worlds to lose yourself in. Click through to see some of Cha Jong-Rye’s work, and be sure to check out more from her most recent exhibition at the Sunkok Art Museum.
