About Mutation 10

Fabric artist, Chung-Im Kim's series of felt tapestries called, "Mutation," are striking geometrical shapes that mimic the natural world. The artist has cut pure white felt fabric into irregular rectangles that are sewn back together with precise stitches into an organic grid.

"For me, patterns are hard to ignore as I encounter everyday life. Whether the source comes from nature, historical context or plainly created by me, working with patterns always gives me the thrill of entering a new world. A pattern can grow into a complex image jungle or a well-disciplined ornamental beauty." - Chung-Im Kim.
