Shin Healim

Shin Healimis a very experienced jewellery artist from Korea. In her series of leather pieces, she creates perpetual looking shapes Leather is cut into thin pieces and repetitively quilted together as if weaving the organic material and time together. Leather as a skin itself reflects the change of time and the natural barrier between the living being and its environment. In this case the multiple layers of leather reflect the changes and isolation of time and space which the artist has endured and her determination to carry on with life. Her work results into pieces with amazing colours and subtle patterns of light and shade.
