''Girlish and sentimental remark about the surrounding world is the key feature defining the nature of my painting. I depict banal objects, trivial events, and memories of acquainting people. Petty objects are isolated from its surrounding context and enlarged to highlight its existence. In a glance my works may seem to portray the naïve lightness and the kitsch of pop art. However, taking a second look, it reflects intimate dialogue and warm perspective towards life surrounding me.''
Minjee Kim will keep her artist talk 26th of January at 6 pm. Warmly welcome!
