Junkhouse‘s (Su Young So) works are based on her concept of Organicism. In a nutshell, new lifeforms are born through the artist’s eyes and imaginations on inorganic objects.

‘The characters in Tip Toland’s sculptures are fragile creatures that find themselves at the end of adulthood or at the beginning of childhood.

Their expressions are [...]
