Sawool Kim: “Event Horizon”
Sawool Kim presents pieces in the series of Event Horizon: “I visualize an unconscious abstract zone as a habitat of endangered objects. I extract the pigments from the original habitats of them and create a color palette to generate the unconscious dimension. Using extruded paint strings, I “weave” the landscape.
Ultimately, what I want to depict is the scene full of shaking traces and histories of all the vanishing existence.”
Opening reception is on Saturday, April 1, 4-6 pm.
