She has a lot of interest in cosmic phenomena and the earth’s atmosphere and uses it as the subject of her paintings. Her fluid techniques and additional textures created by hand are her hallmarks. Winnie Kim wants to express her curiosity about the invisible area based on the visible area and named it ‘My Microcosm‘. She regarded the countless waveforms and curves in the picture were similar to human life.

Luca Curci – What is art to you?
Wonyoung Kim – To me, art is an act of expression that answers questions that arise between reality and ideals.

LC – How did you get to your current artistic practice?
WK – I haven’t been able to draw for quite a long period of time due to my work life. However, about two years ago, there was a constant call from within me, and to answer it, I began to paint again.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
WK – I combine work and art. I have a desire to continue my recent series of works.

I think it is a very good opportunity to provide quality opportunities to artists who need exhibitions.
