5. Bumin Kim: Walk the Sky
Women & Their Work (Austin)
March 9 – April 18
“For Bumin Kim, thread and string become the media to explore many of the same questions usually investigated with paint. In Walk the Sky, Kim’s work examines the nature of line beyond the two-dimensional surface into three-dimensional space. While thread and string are usually synonymous with the utilitarian actions of weaving and stitching, here they emphasize the energy, delicacy, and grace found in painting. These works shift, undulate, and pulse towards us, declaring themselves as entities emancipated from the confines of flatland, and now poised and vibrating just above the surface.”
