REVIEW: Do Ho Suh @ Lehmann Maupin Gallery, New York

Oct 24, 2014 2:49AM

Celebrated for his sculptures and installations dealing with identity and displacement, 52-year-old Korean artist Do Ho Suh has been making drawings for his highly poetic projects since the mid-1980s. Key to his engaging practice, Suh’s works on paper were initially a testing ground for philosophical ideas about home as a place that continually travels with you, as well as for concepts of karma related to personal and collective memories. Over the years, however, Suh’s drawings—made from colored threads embedded in handmade paper and painstaking rubbings of architectural sites—have come into their own as distinctive works of art that add a new perspective to the age-old medium.
