Honestly organic in aesthetic, Jun Kim starts each work with skillfully direct lines, deftly interpreting his world in glib strokes. Kim blissfully loses himself in his deft shapes and forms, unearthing an evocative relationship with the tangible world around him. Pure, poignant energy flows from Kim onto his paper, and spills out to the viewer in perfectly abstract and affecting formations. Medium is no barrier to Kim, who finds solace in this ethereal world of spiritual aesthetics. “This world is neither in my consciousness nor in my own being,” states Kim. “It is my belief that there is an energy that flows in this world, which will break through to the next generation.” Kim’s works, vigorous in unadulterated emotion, bind us in humanity and understanding. Born in Seoul, Korea, Kim’s memories seep into his consciousness in whispered, chaste forms, and stir in us a compassion for the world around us.
Kim lives and works in Tokyo, Japan.
