Chae, Rimm works to harmonize diverse values which are the tradition and the present, the figurative and the abstract, two-dimensional and three-dimensional, and the East and the West through her Ottchil (Korean lacquer) painting. To her, working is a journey of seeing, embracing, and closely understanding nature through natural materials such as Ottchil, Hemp cloth, Hanji (Korean mulberry paper), mother-of-pearl, and red clay. She started her artistic career as a jewelry designer in 2000. She has expanded her work with 'Ottchil Landscape Painting', which demonstrates the novel potential of Ottchil as pure fine art. She also has been creating ‘Sculptural Painting' based on the use of Ottchil and mother-of-pearl. She has held 12th solo exhibitions and various group exhibitions in Korea as well as overseas, including the collateral exhibition “PERSONAL STRUCTURES” at the 2022 Venice Biennale. She received the SOLO Award at the 2017 Artexpo New York and was also awarded by the International André Malraux Association at the International Cultural Heritage Fair held in Paris. She hopes to share her contemplation continuously on nature by reinterpreting the traditional colors that flow from Dancheong (traditional Korean pattern on wooden buildings), Saekdong (multi-colored stripes), and Jogakbo (patchwork wrapping cloth) in her works. She will also continue to explore the interaction between tradition and modernism through various Ottchil techniques and experimental materials.
