Rimm Chae overcame the stickiness of lacquer to use pointillism in "Dancing willows", in which the matière and rich use of color creates a sense of mystique. The vivid, yet delicate dancheong hues form bands of color upon the canvas. The colorful dots carefully painted in traditional hues add depth and a modern feel to the painting, while mother-of-pearl shines against the vibrant background.

*dancheong: Korean traditional decorative coloring and patterns painted on wooden structures to protect them from the elements and harmful insects. Based on the five basic colors–blue, red, yellow, white, black – dancheong has decorated Korean buildings since prehistoric times.
