Biography

Inspired by the grandeur of the physical realm, from celestial bodies to earthly organisms, U-ram Choe’s complex kinetic sculptures combine delicate, otherworldly beauty with machines, motors, and steel. Choe’s shiny biomorphic forms flutter, glow, and breathe inside their metallic bodies, appearing both familiar and entirely alien. His 2010 exhibition entitled “Kalpa” featured the artist’s realization of an awe-inspiring night sky, a cosmos made out of lights, reflective surfaces, and glimmering jewel-like resin shapes suspended in a darkened gallery space.
