saerom yoon shapes colorful crystal series with acrylic resin

 

wanting to create shapes purely through colors, seoul based artist saerom yoon uncovers the exclusive crystal series_raw edition. his creations are dyed with transparent acrylic resin, enabling a maximum expression of colors regardless of material property.

during the design process, saerom yoon has found that some textures randomly appear when casting an acrylic resin. after every application, those patterns reveal themselves differently and somehow out of control. as a result, the artist has selected a few of those textures and put them together after processing — creating intriguing gems. indeed those unexpected textures give a more natural quality to the collection, unlike the ones purely crafted by men or machines.
