Kiwon Wang

NEW YORK, NY

My work is based on the theme east meets west. Paper meets silver; throwaway meets precious. I explore all these encounters through the provocative combination of material and form: using pearls and newspaper, adding gold and diamonds, to create new questions about the role of jewelry in the twenty first century. In every step of my jewelry creation, I test eastern traditional boundaries and western modern boundaries in the realm of objects that adorn the body through contrast, tension, absence and presence as well as finding a new harmony.
