Text about Jean Rah´s work

"[...] One of the most distinctive characteristics of Rah’s art is that she builds her work by putting together small units, as if in mosaics. To do this, Rah carved a variety of images on the flat surface of palm-scaled square pine board, plywood, or black rubber plate in bas-relief and then combined them from four directions.
Although they are identical in size, the images carved on the surface are not the same with one another: some figurative images such as seeds, flowers, leaves, clouds, raindrops, birds, eggs, and the like are identifiable but some are abstractly represented or replaced with indented surfaces, just hinting at their intended shapes.
Rah’s work in which all fragments are assembled together to form an entire shape. The shape itself, however, is not immutably completed but arbitrarily set, opening to possibilities of its change.
This series of pieces shows the organic relation of part to whole as the principle of the existence of the universe or her awareness of monad as the first thing that came into existence in the universe.
In other words, Rah’s work refers to the world constructed with nomads and based on the heterogeneous elements in accord with one another.  [...] "
