Creating metal branch sculptures worthy of Edward Scissorhands, Korean artist Kang Dong Hyun is exploring the world of fauna using flora. Each figure is communicated using only its most essential elements – facial features, feet, horns, and silhouettes, all represented using branch shapes. The clever spareness of the details combined with the unexpected use of branches to form animals is such a refreshing surprise! They feel to me like the hope of spring (which I could really use right about now).
