Chun Hui Pak


 My current passion is creating artworks based on geometric patterns from origami paper folds of various subjects (birds, flowers, etc.). I start with basic origami mountain and valley folds as symbols of Yin and Yang and move to ever more complex structures. I have deconstructed many complex fold sequences using enlargement and oil on canvas format. Viewers perceive the overall space as stretched, pulsating, elastic, warped and topographic. The effect can be further mesmerizing when multiple panels combine to reveal a kaleidoscope appearance as lines reconnect at different points to produce a different geometrical structure with a different visual structures. Viewer reaction is amusing…seeing the artwork as a three-dimensional projection when it is actually a flat panel. By continually evolving with my interpretations I am continually fascinated by the magic of Asian art of origami.
