Title: Palaces

Description:  Ancient Palaces and Textiles

 

For my senior project, I focused on creating textile designs, inspired by the ornamental paintings of traditional Korean buildings, especially palaces and temples. Using collage, monotype, silk-screening, dyeing techniques and sewn appliques, I developed a color palette based on traditional Korean color combination and created my own designs. I combined this traditional Korean aesthetic to a modern global sensibility to show my interpretation of ancient Korean cultures.
