  • Tad McKinley

    Wow, these are great.

    • I am fortunate enough to own a Divola print from one of his desert dusk series. The light is essentially monochromatic with two intense rectangles of light coming from the windows of a small shack. If you can find the series, take a look – they are wonderful. Also, take a look at my work if you get the chance – it’s always good to get feedback.

According to Korean tradition, artisans have a habit of destroying and discarding imperfect pieces. Since 2001 Korean artist Yeesookyung has taken these porcelain fragments, creating beautiful, imperfect sculptures by fusing them with gold leaf in the Japanese tradition of kintsugi. See more images from “Translated Vase” below.
