The murals by Ran Hwang are fabulous artworks that will be featured with the Leila Heller Gallery at the Art Southampton starting July 26th. One of her pieces includes a sculpture that is 27 feet long and has seven panels.

The first dark blue boat installation is called 'East Wind from Old Palace,' and the light blue installation with gold beads is called 'Healing Blossom.' Ran Hwang makes these colorful installations as a form of self-meditation because they take hours and hours of manual labour to complete.

Her sculptures are part sculpture and part mural, and are made from buttons, sequins and beads. Ran Hwang attended the School of Visual Arts, New York and the Graduate School of Arts Chung-Ang University in Seoul, South Korea.
