Mina Kang creates jewellery utilizing the material of ramie fabric. Ramie fabric has always been loved by Koreans as the best material for summer clothes, not only because of its durability but also its breathability. While the woven structure of ramie fabric reveals a visually strong texture, it is also semi-transparent because of the porous structure. Mina Kang is being recognized internationally as an emerging contemporary jewellery artist with her collaged fabric works. Kang’s work utilizes various compositions of bold colors, which reflect traditional Korean fabric patchwork, ‘Chogakbo’, and also possibly the rural Korean landscape of rice paddies along hills and valleys. On the other hand, these bold compositions could be associated with the “Color Field Abstract” from mid-20th century painting. Another aspect of Kang’s jewellery that draws the viewer’s attention besides the color and texture is the craftsmanship and how the artist addresses details. As an example, she applies multiple thickness and colors of threads and even sewing techniques to connect pieces of fabric and this diversity plays a key role to create rich expressions. Mina Kang’s jewellery shows a solid combination of abstract shapes and bold colors, yet feels intimate thanks to the immediate connection that ramie fabric has to our body.
