From Galeria del Mar
Always seeking art that is new, innovative and potentially timelessÂ â€”Â we are hanging several new works from Korean couple â€œthe Yunsâ€ at Galeria de Mar, 9 King St., in downtown St. Augusine.
Their creations are essentially highly evolved abstractions done on their own hand-made paper from a process that dates back thousands of years.
The bark of the Southeast Asian Dak Tree is harvested annually, processed in Korea and then shipped to their studio in New Jersey. Pigments are added to differing batches of the Dak Tree pulp thereby creating a palette of colors and tones for the artists to utilize.
Through a straining process scores of different layers create a substrate and then the final layers of delicately colored paper are laid to their artistic and designed purposes resulting in textured and vibrant surfaces which respond brilliantly to varying degrees of light.
Galeria del Mar now has 10 new originals on display and available for sale. Prices, including a custom made frame, range from $1,300 to $8,000.
â€œWe are proud to offer the highly developed and subtly influenced artistry in abstraction of the Yuns and predict a magnificent future for their market here in Floridaâ€ said Len Cutter, President of Cutter and Cutter Fine Art.
