EXPOSE EXPOSED: The Quantum Earth | Featuring Cha Jongrye

Cha Jongrye’s works of hand-carved wood have an earthly sensuality that only alludes to the deeper meaning. The surface is a technically masterful manipulation of material; layering delicate wood pieces and sanding them by hand, fusing and grinding wooden slivers, Cha meticulously fits together topographical contours that have no beginning or end. These monumental configurations call upon the ideas of creation, infinity, and eternity. The conical shapes that are prevalent in her work reference birth in nature; a pointed tip bursts through the earth’s surface and continues to reach upward as it grows. The surface landscape created by these forms is a metaphor for the human egoic experience of continually reaching to create more as we cement our place in the universe.
