So Yoon Lym is a Korean artist who lived in Kenya, Uganda and is now based in the USA – via a stint studying with exiled Korean painter, Ung No Lee, in France. According to the artist, that summer working with Lee was when she realised that "art was inextricably tied to nature and my life".

Lym's collections of illustrations of hair-braid patterns is simple in theory, but certainly not in reality. She has illustrated some properly complex and meticulously created artworks in her The Dreamtime and Hair and Braid Patterns series.

Lym named her recent project in reference to Indigenous Australians' Dreamtime: "These hair and braid pattern designs are for the most part viewed from an aerial perspective. In most cultures around the world, perspective in art is aerial. It is not the egocentric perspective of European Renaissance art. The aerial perspective that the aborigines used in their art was a way of showing that nature, the land, life, the earth, all living things, and all creative forces are greater than us, but we are tied to and interconnected to all things around us as spirits floating in a time continuum."
