Working in the precise and fine medium of mother of pearl - "jagae" in Korean - Jian Yoo’s iridescent art bridges historical and contemporary, nature and artificial, arts and crafts. Made of thousands of mother-of-pearl pieces layered in intricate patterns, Yoo's art respectfully acknowledges the long tradition of master craft workers while reinventing the genre with distinctively modern sensibilities.
