Artist list

Christian Faur, Yong Joo Kim, Zemer Peled
Zemer Peled was born and raised in a Kibbutz in the northern part of Israel.  After completing her BFA at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, she earned her MA from the Royal College of Art in the UK. Her work has been exhibited in museums and institutions around the world.
Zemer Peled’s work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world.  Her sculptural language is informed by her surrounding environment, engaging viewers with themes of memories, identity, and place. Her works are formed out of thousands of ceramic shards, constructed into forcible organic sculptures and installations.

A native of Seoul, Korea, Yong Joo Kim received her MFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from the Rhode Island School of Design. She is a Society of Arts and Crafts and NICHE award-winning artist with an extensive record of exhibitions across Europe, Asia, North America, and Australia. Considered a pioneer in the use of hook-and-loop fasteners as material for art, Yong Joo crosses the genre of both wearable sculpture and installations.
While most would find the material unattractive, mundane, or insignificant, she has continually produced beautiful work inspired by the qualities of uncovered from within the Velcro® hook-and-loop fasteners. She leverages her interaction with the material to improvise, letting herself be surprised. She finds such a relationship between mastery, variety, and sustainability fascinating.

Christian Faur was born in New York City and moved throughout his childhood. After serving in the Army, he earned a degree in physics from California State University, Northridge, then an MFA from the Transart Institute in Austria and New York. Christian has exhibited his work in museums and galleries internationally, most recently at the Daejeon Museum of Art in South Korea. 
The things that inspire me to create, I find, are buried deep within the structures and systems that form the underpinning of our natural world.  These invisible layers are seen most clearly through the lens of logic, which is used to decipher the underlying rules and laws that govern the physical world. In my work, I try to mimic these elegant structures of nature by developing systems of my own with which to express my thoughts and ideas, so that the medium and the message appear as one.
