Hence, through the exhibition, the specific intimate connection that exists between interpretations and crossovers of culture is exposed.

HANJI FILMING (documentary) 

South Korea

October 14th - 28th, 2016

Invited by Arirang TV to travel to Korea and work on a 1 hour documentary about Hanji. 

 

They were in production of a series of ArTravel documentaries to highlight people from around the world who have been influenced by some part of the Korean culture. For the filming they took me on a journey over 2 weeks to meet different artists and paper makers from around the country.

 

At the end of my journey I worked with a well known Hanji artist, Suji Kim and together we collaborated in producing a special piece of Hanji art that symbolised my journey.

You can view the documentary here......

Exhibition - Students work - United Arab Emirates

Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates

May, 2014

An exhibition of my student's work over a period of 6 years in the United Arab Emirates.  As my farewell event they held an exhibition at the local sailing Club and I was thrilled with the volume and quality of work they'd achieved. It's exciting for me to know that these wonderful ladies have become as excited about Hanji as I have and many of them will continue doing it back in their own countries.
