Fine Arts alumna Soo Sunny Park (CCAD 1998) has an installation, Unwoven Light, on view at the Rice University Art Gallery in Houston through Aug. 30.

The piece, which is created from 37 individually sculpted units of glass, is an abstract form suspended from the walls and ceiling.

“We don’t notice light when looking so much as we notice the things light allows us to see,” Park notes on the gallery's website. “Unwoven Light captures light and causes it to reveal itself, through colorful reflections and refractions on the installation's surfaces and on the gallery floor and walls.”

Park is a recipient of a Joan Mitchell MFA Grant, the 19th Annual Michigan Fine Arts Competition Grand Prize, the Helen Foster Barnett Prize from the National Academy Museum, and the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Fellowship. Her work has been included in exhibitions across the U.S. and has been featured in numerous art publications.

Park is originally from Seoul, South Korea. She moved moved to the United States at a young age, growing up in Orlando, FL, and Marietta, GA, and attending Lake Howell High School.
