Yun-Woo Choi Paper Sculptures

Korean artist Yun-Woo Choi creates sculptures from resin and rolled up paper. His work is inspired by the unanswered questions of space and time. The physical vrs the intangible.

He says this about his work (via the Anderson Ranch Arts Center Blog)

Yun-Woo: My big subject matter is the concept of something beyond languages and something beyond images. That’s why I use magazines or text. Languages and images are all symbolic things, it points at something, but language itself is not the thing. Many people just think the symbol is real, but I’m looking beyond that. I want to somehow point myself at the real, but still use those symbols and images to create it. All the text and image in my work is kind of denied the ability to use those symbols.
