The exhibition titled Blue Fantasia offers work by Wonhee Noh who has created her work on a special type of Korean paper called “Hanji” and using a special type of Korean ink called “Hobun.” Noh applies the Hobun ink on the Hanji paper before folding the paper up and spraying it with water. The effect of the water and the blue ink come through the layers of added Hanji to create unique and mysterious designs.
