Discover how the renowned Korean-born artist Do Ho Suh translates his architectural works into sublime two-dimensional compositions.

A sculptor and installation artist, Do Ho Suh is best known for his full-scale fabric works in which he meticulously reimagines the architectural space of his past homes. Recently, Suh has turned to print and paper as a new medium to channel and re-create these forms. The resulting Thread Drawings, developed using an innovative technique that employs thread as a sculptural material on handmade paper, represent an important breakthrough in Suh's repertoire. This book also documents Suh's pastel rubbings of interior spaces and everyday objects that disclose and memorialize details of his surroundings, as well as exquisitely detailed cyanotypes--a printing process that articulates familiar images as silhouettes in shades of cyan blue, further illuminating Suh's exploration of self, identity, and home.
