Artist Statement

Hwa Jin Kim’s work starts from lines overlapping and repeating as the artist’s hands move to meet each other. This process of line to form creates elegant objects that are at once organic and architectural. Further adding to this duality is the material that she employs to create her forms. The wax she uses is stable at room temperature, yet reacts to the warmth of her hands. This process of hand building stresses the connection between the artist and materials and allows her to create objects that maintain a general geometric pattern while also expressing handmade warmth.
Ms. Kim completed BFA and MFA studies in South Korea, and then continued formal studies for two more years in Germany. She is currently being exhibited in Asia, Europe, and North America.
