She was one of the artists in the show Tradition in Transition.
47" x45" x3"
industrial felt, silk screen, hand stitching
I chose this piece, entitled Dawn, because to me as curator it had its roots in patchwork. She sewed together by hand patches just like a 'patchwork' but instead of using quilter's cotton she used industrial felt.
The silk screen designs Ms. Kim printed over the felt brought to mind the stitches made in the act of quilting.
Her 3-dimensional work demonstrated tradition transitioned onto a very contemporary plain.
Her newer works are also very interesting.
34" x 34" x1 1/2"
51"x 24"x 2"
I love the way the silk screen lines
connect from patch to patch
