Suyeon Kim Biography

Sueyeon Kim (b.1986) started working in illustrated bird and plant guide books, encyclopedias, and obscene picture books. She collects the images and makes prints to build three-dimensional objects. These three-dimensional objects are both drawings and objects at the same time. The building method is not fixed as she changes it depending on the images. The recent work is based on a Chunhwa (春畵, literally 'spring pictures'). She started with the question: What would I paint if I were a Chunhwa painter? By using sculptures reminding us of classical beauty and flower arrangements, the artist attempts to portray a great fondness existing between lovers who also seek momentary pleasure. The final image contains different perspectives, directions of light, and traces left from the original images, implying that every object in the final image once existed in a different time and space.
