Sweet and Subversive Sculptures by Eun-Ha Paek

I first saw Eun-Ha Paek’s ceram­ics while attend­ing ICON7 in 2012.  Her small, bizarre char­ac­ters cap­ti­vat­ed me, and I’ve fol­lowed her work ever since. Today, Paek is still cre­at­ing sculp­tures with clay, in addi­tion to wood and card­board. I enjoy her exag­ger­a­tion of ears, hair, and more; the melt­ed eye­balls and an unhap­py drum­stick are simul­ta­ne­ous­ly sub­ver­sive with a can­dy-col­ored sur­face treat­ment that feels jubi­lant.
