Art Alive

Feb.27 2019


Caroline Voagen Nelson and I Soojin J. Kim designed this craft structure art activity to have an educational element on the animation production process to children. Children created their own background, title frame, and character movement, so all animations are unique. So proud of them all and thank you so much MWPAI and PrattMWP. Besides, I had so much fun designing paper puppets for children to cut out, connect, and move. Of course, a few of them were started designing their own characters during the event.


Soojin Kim conceived crafts using various Asian and cross-cultural celebrations of the new year. MWPAI facilitate community crafts 3 to 4 times a year and it can serve up to several hundred children who visit the museum.

Vanity of Life

Nov 2-Dec 15, 2018 


Through this exhibition, I wanted to introduce an interesting perspective on American confectionery and consumerism. I borrowed subject and format from a Dutch still life tradition like Trompe l'Oeil in these works. The paintings depict a cupboard containing a human skull, paper with text, natural sundries, and iconic American sweet, Oreos. Vanitas is the epitome of European still-life in the 16th and 17th centuries, symbolizing symbolic monuments symbolizing flowers, exotic fruits, raw meat, skeletons, feathers, shells, insects and other human achievements to remind human mortality.

An Alternative Still Life

This show is for two young woman artists, a Chinese artist Vena Gu and a Korean artist Soojin Kim. They both base in the US, Soojin Kim in Boston, and Vena in Providence. Even though they came from the different culture, country, but we find they have something in common- they perceive the world with deep thinking and feeling. Their paintings make us wonder -- how do we perceive existence and time; how do we keep things that are unkeepable? Art endows us with a possibility to record and represent these transient and delicate things. The painting, although static, implies the passing of time. The destiny of things, in a sense, reflects the destiny of humanity.

Artificial. Synthetic. Fake. Fraud. To be artificial might carry the ideas of being untrusted; something that lacks the natural qualities we as humans hold onto. An artificial universe contains infinite implications as expansive as the thought of a universe itself. Next week four women artists examine their synthetic, fake, and fraudulent world, whether crafted by their own making or projected onto them.

작가 내면의 심상을 매개하듯 텅 비워진 전시장의 중앙홀을 중심으로 평면과 입체 작품이 조용히 조응하며 작가의 명상적인 호흡을 전하는 독특한 미술전시가 부평아트센터 갤러리 꽃누리에서 펼쳐지고 있습니다. 한국화의 정적인 여백의 미가 느껴지기도 하는 이번 전시는 멀리서 보면 고서화의 풍경을 재현하지만, 가까이 다가가면 어릴 때 즐겨 먹던 오레오 쿠키가 등장하며 동서양의 이질적인 문화적 시선을 흡수하고 있습니다.
