Artist Yoon Sol was born in Seoul, South Korea in 1976. He received his BFA and MFA from the Seoul National University of Korea. He completed a doctor’s course at the university in 2012 and today is an assistant professor of craft design at the Baekseok University of Korea. He’s had two solo exhibitions in Seoul and several group exhibitions in cities such as Chicago, San Diego, Jingdezhen and Beijing.
His minimal work includes series such as From the Archetype, Infinity, A Meaningful Sphere, Variation and ARCHIE-POT Series. The artist explores different permutations on a single form. He calls these “limitless variations.” The artist states:
“I work from a sphere to produce thin layers of bowl shaped elements with different diameters and heights.
“If these layers are placed one by one, small and big bowls can form an installation piece.
“For me, the meaning of ‘Units as Sphere’is a archetype that can be cut and shaped in various ways.”
