Sunhee Kim exhibition: "In Yeon (Fate)"
Jun. 26 – Jul. 10, 2012
Fahm Hall Gallery | 1 N. Fahm St., Savannah, Ga.
The SCAD exhibitions department presents "In Yeon (Fate)," an exhibition by M.F.A. painting student Sunhee Kim. Kim's work explores the traditions and culture of Korea, her homeland. The idea of In-Yeon (human relationships) or karma is the most recent inspiration for her work. Her creations engage the urushi process to explore the complex notions of karma in human relationships. The colors and patterns she chooses symbolize the feelings she has for people in her life as they are represented by each individual piece. The work in this exhibition communicates these feelings through the use of many layers of abstract ornamentation as well as the subtractive and revealing process of sanding. Collectively, her urushi pieces seek to mirror the vast supply of human emotion in their smooth reflective surfaces.
Reception: June 29, 6-7:30 p.m.
Gallery hours: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
