Biographical Information:

Kim’s work began in two-dimensional process-based formats such as painting, printmaking and photography. As a result, her work has become an amalgamation of her own fascination with material, form and process. In undergrad, her work transitioned to sculpture and large-scale installations, which aimed to leave behind the trace of her own presence via a wide array of interventions with mixed media. Her non-traditional and yet strangely intuitive methods of working with material lend Kim’s work a visual vitality only achievable through her touch and experiment based practice.

In graduate school Kim began to rely heavily on inspiration drawn from daily photographs that she took of what she deemed “essential” to her interactions in time and with landscape. This process of documentation, has become a critical stepping stone and building block for making her work. Through her intensely physical and process-driven method of production, Kim seeks to provide not only herself, but also others, with a second chance at experience.

Kim is currently the Visiting Assistant Professor of Art and Ceramics Area Head for the Department of Art & Art History as well as the School of Continuing Education at Providence College.
