Artist: Sun-Hyuk Kim
South-Korean artist. Kim plays with shapes and materials. He deceives our perceptions by using heavy steel to create twigs and branches. Cement and concrete are recurring materials in his work and used as background for his paintings, or as a raw base for his sculptures. They incarnate the contrast desired by the artist between the apparent lightness of its silhouettes and power of the natural world and life in general. If his creations speak of the human, his life, his aspirations, they explore basically forcefully poetry, futility, imperfection or negativism that characterize today - for him, discontentment became a kind of “disease of the XXI century”.
