Mika Kim Time TravelMy sensuous velveteen installation. Line as fine as feather cover the surface of lifeless objects such as vase or a bag; also, just like the umbilical cord, solid lines connect objects, which are not apparently related with each other, or the line put down roots like tree branches. This expression visualizes the way the I am involved with the other and I understand the world I belong to. Lines are like antenna to me. To draw a line is the most straightforward way to get to know objects as well as to look at myself.
In my two decades of practicing art, my choice of medium ranged from installations, objects to painting, all evolved from a strong foundation and philosophy in drawing, which I describe as my most fitting medium.
ns and drawings seem to be organ separated from their bodies or alien plant life, my paintings are composition of fabric, thread and drawing. While my 3 dimensional creation tempts a touch, my paintings are visual temptations.
My sensitive approach to materials and commitment to exploring the role of nature in shaping the human experience.
