Ghostly Weaving

Moving Up by Key-Took Geum

Can you guess what you’re looking at? What seems like blobs of delicate translucent strings of colour are actually sculptures of garments made of wire and beads (seen from the bottom).

Korean artist Key-Sook Geum has brilliantly made these beautiful ghostly shapes of garments from wire and beads and what impresses me the most is the space and volume she creates and the delicacy in her works.

Almost like ghostly souls rising from the dead, these pieces are truly remarkable and have a silhouhette of their own.

Not only does she create dresses but other garments too, like coats, vests and shirts.

Here we can see a close up of how detailed the work is.  Quite a masterpiece.
