b.1964, Seoul, Korea. Lives and works in Seoul, Korea
Mikyung Kim’s geometric paintings encapsulate her inquisition of the lived experience, metaphorically translating aspects that are both personal to herself and universal to our world. As the blocks and forms of color on the surfaces collide, collapse, and coalesce, they reverberate Kim’s relationship to her perception of life, time, and memory.
