Rachel Park – Artist in Residence

“I am an artist who has compassion on everyday, ordinary materials. I have worked with newspapers, straws, toilet paper, plastic bags, lights to just name the few. For the past 4 years, jumbo roll toilet paper has been my major material. Toilet paper is like pencil and paint which I use to draw and paint in 3D space.

I want to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. As an artist, I see the artistic potential of those mundane materials and work to draw the beauty out of them.

My works are also site-specific and make invisible elements such as wind, light visible. They respond to the atmosphere, which is mainly light and wind and the atmosphere becomes part of my work. Moreover for the past years, I have incorporated movement in my art practice by using motors, fans, computers and robots.” Rachel Park
