Seoul-based designer and artist Rahee Yoon is acquainted with all sorts of techniques ranging from metalwork and ceramics to textiles, acrylic and epoxy resin casting, and woodwork.
Rahee’s approach to art and design is crystallized in the ongoing Block series composed by coloured materials that appear to be floating inside transparent acrylic blocks of diverse geometric shapes. The final result is sculptures that display translucent and blurred gradations of one or two vivid colors, mainly the color blue is used by the artist who admires the African lily agapanthus’s dark blue petals.
As shared by Yoon, the title of the series, “not only indicates the base material of the artwork but also represents how the series evolves from its simplest form into a multifaceted structure.” In a way, the block is the basic unit of a modular yet intuitive take on sculpture and interior design as Yoon has applied the same concept to tables, door handles, or flower vases. We can all agree that the designer succeeds in “drawing chromatic waves across transparent borders.”
