Seulgi Kwon received her BFA and MFA in Metalwork and Jewellery from Kookmin University, Seoul, Korea. Her work has been exhibited internationally in Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea and the United States. Kwon’s sculptural forms are made with silicone, thread, pigment and paper. The end result reveals the lightness of intricately coloured and patterned silicone, capturing the translucence of glass.
