The Soft, Psychedelic Sculptures of Hein Koh

May 14, 2018

Hein Koh is a Brooklyn-based sculptor who is not afraid to speak openly about female sexuality and motherhood. Her work is comprised of soft, colorful sculptures of dripping eyes, crying rainbows, glittery claws and clam shells, putting conversations about perception and symbolism in a playful light.

Koh's Greenpoint studio looks like an adult playground, from glittered, melting fiberglass rainbows and rubber duckies, to large soft sculptures of eyes, stars, clawed hands, and yes, both sets of lips. Her works straddle the thin line between sensuous and uncanny.
