Sui Park, currently based in New York, creates 3-dimensional organic forms in generic and biomorphic shapes. Through these forms, she attempts to express seemingly static yet dynamic characteristics of our evolving lives. While they resemble transitions and transformations of nature, the forms are to capture subtle but continuous changes in our emotions, sentiments, memories, and expectations.
Park weaves and connects traces and tracks of subtle changes into organic forms. The organic forms are made with mass-produced industrial materials, in particular, monofilament and cable ties. They are non–durable, disposable, trivial, inexpensive, and easily consumed materials. But, when she weaves and connects them, they are transformed into organic visualizations. She wants them to be creating lasting moments, evoking, and encapsulating our precious thoughts.
Sui Park often finds these moments from nature. She thinks nature allows us to pause and find things that have been overlooked and are inspiring. Nature provides her room to find breakthroughs and answers and gives her time to ponder into thoughts. Through her work, she wants to bring to our attention the moments that nature allows us to find and look forward to. She presents nature in abstract and porous ways so that they can be filled with our thoughts and moments.

Park also has been selected to participate in public art projects, including "The 6th Edition Georgetown GLOW, Pompom" public art project and "Sprout" in Washington D.C., "Karen, just one more on top" at PS41 Crocheron in Queens, NY, "Floating Imagery" at Pelham Art Center in Pelham, NY, and "Playtime" at Metropolitan Pavilion in New York.
