Manufactured objects conspicuously transform into unexpected new forms, making a strong statement about the cultural condition of abundance. Sharp attention is focused on reconsideration of the ordinary.

This Savage series used discarded plastic objects, assembled them together, and wrapped them in natural material- jute and cowhide leather. The objects amalgamated from their original shape by concealing their origins and revealing new forms. The work is a testament to the scope of innovation, invention and beauty born out even the most mundane, everyday objects.

Jay Sae Jung Oh was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea.

Educated in the arts of sculpture, she pursued a Bachelors of Arts and holds a Master’s Degree in Sculpture from Kookmin University, South Korea. During her practice in the fine arts, Oh became focused on the ability of design to communicate in a much more familiar manner. The importance of design as a vehicle for communicate compelled her to join the 3D Design Department at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI. At Cranbrook, Oh was able to transcend the boundaries of art and design, culminating the two entities into one.

Since Cranbrook, Ms. Oh has worked alongside NYC based, Italian designer, Gaetano Pesce on a multitude of projects from furniture, installations and product design. Currently a visiting professor at Industrial Design, The University of Illinois at Chicago, IL, Ms. Oh continues to build her body of work, creating striking pieces that explore the multiple intersections of art and design.
