In this highly detailed etching of rocks in a riverbed, Kim explores the potential of mark making on paper through realism. The river rocks are a seamless construction created by contrasting bold abstraction with the most ephemeral of delicate lines and allowing the unmarked paper to act as the conveyance of light. Kim’s work has been widely exhibited and is represented in major public and corporate collections, such as MoMA, The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, Korea, and many others.
