Born in Seoul and presently based mostly in London, artist Minyoung Kim explores the form of interior ideas and emotions which are tough to specific in phrases. Utilizing uncooked, un-stretched canvas, Kim portrays ironic scenes in “a delicate method,” making a tone that she refers to as “unusual however cute” or “creepy cute.” Her work replicate on previous reminiscences or moments of concern in addition to goals or actions that would not be carried out in actual life. On this means, what Kim tasks onto the canvas is a part of her personal interiority — “the whole lot inside me that I’ll not have the ability to specific myself instantly.” The photographs usually convey a way of hazard and thriller and comprise recurring imagery, like a crescent moon or a cat. As Kim explains additional:
“[The cats] at all times look grasping and watch each second that occurs within the canvas as if they’re God-like beings. They could typically symbolise myself, or be cynical pictures of contemporary society folks. The combination of those working pictures might be seen as a combination of heterogeneity, a dissonance of grotesque traits…. The environment of the portray, surrounded by pastel-toned fairytale and contemporary colors, makes the scenes in precarious conditions appear much more paradoxical.”
