Jean Jinho Kim
Jean Jinho Kim presents her newest series of works, Green Gestures. Says the artist: “By starting with inorganic, man-made materials, I can imagine their potential to be reshaped and repurposed into dynamic forms. I choose auto parts, LED lights and other common objects to express my experiences and perspective in a way that can be inclusive and can engage the viewer in a meaningful dialogue. I intentionally use a wide range of materials to bring unexpected pieces together and to give materials new purposes. I aim to shatter the preconceived notions of the potential of each object as work. By using components that range from expensive gold paint to discarded used auto parts, I work to extend the meaning of art and diminish predictable boundaries. There is no hierarchy.
I use a combination of various objects that are familiar within a given space to create new arrangements transformed from static to transitional. Using identifiable objects creates a constant interaction between the separate pieces of the work and the final work itself. Not only are the physical elements of each piece important, but also the space they encompass is intentional. Each time I create a work, I keep the physical space in mind. My work includes the environments in which they are installed. My art, the walls, the floor, the viewers and light each create another dimension; each aspect is a participant in the final product.
Hot & Cool
Hot & Cool. Two words that are often used together to describe jazz. Hot can be cool, and cool can be hot, and each can be both. My love of jazz is what informs my art. It is my attempt to fuse rhythm, color, movement and improvisation into the pieces you see here today.
