Abstract Etchings (18/18)

Notes


Yoonjung Shim’s work explores the aesthetic of abstract, conceptual, geometric compositions in etchings. 

With interests in architecture and spatial design, she portrays geometric patterns that we can encounter in our everyday lives. Inspired by the formal beauty of Brutalist architecture, she recreates the regularities of what appears to be a rippling facade. The inconsistent lines which form this geometric tessellation allude to the imperfections that we find in our urban scenes. Her works are often concerned with the depiction of various façades. She loves the subtle inconsistencies created by human strokes, which convey faint unevenness and originalities which differ from digital computerized graphics. By threading contemporary patterns into a very traditional medium,‘etching’, she creates an artistic fusion between past and present.

The ‘Herringbone’ series is a further exploration of the intersections between traditional and contemporary patterning. 

Yoonjung Shim (b. Seoul, South Korea) is a printmaker based in London.
