Korean-born artist Hee-ang Kim’s jewellery explores the idea of proliferation through the detailed patterns and repetition found in nature. Working in resin and polymer clays, softly coloured, she investigates the transient proliferations of organic forms such as mushrooms and other fungi.
Hee-ang holds a BFA and MFA from Kookmin University in Seoul. Her work has been exhibited in Europe and Korea and she has won a number of awards since graduating in 2015. In 2020 she was named as a finalist for the BKV-PRIZE for Young Applied Arts in Munich and in 2015 she received the Quality Award at the Taiwan International Metal Craft Competition in New Taipei City.
