Jeung-Hwa Park

Born in Pusan, Korea, Jeung-Hwa Park studied fashion design and worked in that country as a designer prior to coming to America.

Park uses a contemporary adaptation of the ancient resist dyeing technique in combination with the ancient practice of felting. The knitted fabrics are bound, tied, stitched, cramped, or folded to prevent certain areas from absorbing color. By marrying the spirit of Yin and Yang, traditional technique and modern technology, the sense of hand craft and machine knitting, Park creates innovative wearables that bring a new sculptural and textural sense of aesthetics to the art of knitting.
