Hye Weon Shim is a Korean artist whose repeated working process brings a sense of peace and tranquility in a meditative state of mind. The object boat that is often at the center of her practice becomes a metaphor for “another space” one that becomes vast in our mind; a space that enables us to quietly grow closer to the environment that surround us. She grew up in a family learning about Confucius and Buddhism, which have been very instrumental in her spiritual growth. She was awarded the “FUNSCAD Homer Lord Scholarship Award” in recognition of her ceramic work in Canada, and completed a MFA with fellowship at the Rhode Island School of Design in the USA. Her work has been exhibited and collected in Korea, Canada, USA, Italy, England, Australia, and Czech Republic.
