Artist Noh Sang-gyun creates his works using the type of glittering plastic sequins that are commonly used for clothing or handbags, instead of paint. Instead of brush strokes, he embroiders sequins, one at a time, to complete an abstract image. The pink concentric circles of sequins that fill up the entire canvas radiate iridescent light from various angles, giving off an optic illusion, as if light is fast spinning into a small hole in the center.
