Chaeeun is a textile developer with a BA (Hons) Textiles for Fashion & Interiors, specialising in weave, from UCA, where she is now doing an MA in Textiles. She explores colour and texture through experimental approaches to materials.
Chaeeun has responded to pages from a book called ‘A Floral Calendar and Other Flower Lore’ by Marie Angel. This book shows beautiful floral illustrations and calligraphic handwriting. Chaeeun was particularly interested in the ‘flower clocks’ which show the times at which flowers open and close.
A flower is not always blooming, it has a limited lifespan. A flower is not always as beautiful as when it is in full bloom. Every process from full blossom to closed are amusing. Chaeeun wants people to think about these ideas when looking at her work.
