Studio visit-Juri Kim

Hole-punched patterns formed in over-lapping pieces of paper.

Paintings and other works in the studio of Philadelphia-based artist, Juri Kim. The seemingly random patterns of overlapping dots in Juri Kim's paintings belie a very definite strategy that involves the repetition of sentences translalated by the artist into braille. Kim then takes the translated sentences and composes her paintings in various patterns and colors depending on her needs. The resulting fields of layered dots give her paintings an optical vibrancy that warrant repeated viewings.

Update- Juri Kim will have work in two upcoming exhibitions:

Solo Series
Abington Art Center, 515 Meetinghouse Road,Jenkintown, PA 19046
September 12-November 30, 2010
