HeeYeon Kim’s body of work illustrates movement reminiscent of a simple line drawing, demonstrated with Time Play’s childlike lines and color. Her choice of imagery is often completed in neutral tones, and with repeated brushstrokes. This presentation is HeeYeon’s 2nd solo exhibition with the gallery extension from her Time Play(2016).
Her process for forming her backgrounds starts with a pour over mixture of stone and glass powder into acrylic. Before it gets dry she scrapes or erases it with a brush and repeatedly pours and dries it to spread the image out. She uses plantlike forms to execute her technical process, playing with texture and blank space. These motifs found in nature are transformed beyond landscape and still life.
She has shown her work in major cities such as Seoul, Japan, New York, Berlin, Cannes, and Paris.
