Building Mountains. Kim Minjung SOLO SHOW

Premiere Solo show in New York by the Korean artist Kim Min Jung. Kim uses Hanji paper to "build" modern landscapes, depicting the modern city.
The work of Kim demonstrates her foundation in the traditional Korean calligraphic arts as well as the influence of mid-20th Century abstract expressionism, both of which celebrate the ability to convey energy and spirit through the manipulation of line and practiced spontaneity.
Her artworks make use of small torn pieces of Hanji, a traditional handmade paper from Korea, as well as ink and paint in a sculptural capacity creating the illusion of dimensionality, geometric form, and architectural minimalism.
Her work explores the expressive potential of pure material. The tone of her work is often at once contemplative and whimsical, ethereal and scientific. It moves onlookers to consider man’s place in nature and our relationships to each other.
She is hesitant to label her work as art -- rather she describes her practice as a “discipline of life,” a meditative process which simultaneously requires her to focus her energy and to clear her mind.
