Earlier today my buddies over at Ghostly released a brand new series of prints from Canadian artist Sougwen Chung which I’m totally lusting over. Titled Étude Op.2, the series is a dark, chaotic and beautiful all in one, based on the themes of Bloom, High Tide, Cocoon, and Flight. Sougwen has such a unique and brilliant style, and I have such a hard time processing it. So I asked Sam Valenti, founder of Ghostly, just exactly how she made her pieces, to which she said:
The form and composition of each piece are informed by textures and elements within an original series of graphite drawings. Elements are deconstructed and then sculpted in a 3D digital environment. The final pieces are a result of a multi-disciplinary approach to improvisation and experimentation.
Ok, so it’s not exactly how she makes her pieces but it gives you a good idea of how she’s making these. Be sure to visit Sougwen’s website to see a lot more examples of her impressive work.
