Do-Ho Suh

What I really like about these pieces of art, and Do-Ho Suh’s portfolio in general, is the political and socially-charged aspects of the artworks. I’ve actually had the pleasure to see the traditional army jacket he created from the dog-tags of soldiers in person at the Seattle Art Museum a few summers ago. I remember being very impressed with both the piece as a giant jacket as well as the detail provided by the dog-tags. I love looking at artworks which require either a second look or a closer look to fully experience them. A few of his other pieces incorporate the theme of “everyone together” and “uniting as one.” The house made up of fabric was impressive and memorable, and I feel that Do-Ho Suh has been successful in the execution of some really great artistic concepts.
