Yun Gee Park Gallery & Atelier—Youmi Kim uses wire to create works that at once have volume and an energy of line. Her substantial biomorphic forms have an elegant transparency that suggests drawing in three-dimensional space as they adorn the wearer. For this work, Root of Plant 1, Kim deftly accents the serene earth tones of the woven brass wire with a vibrant synthetic wire that provides bold contrast and evokes the ever-merging dichotomy of nature and technology. Kim studied in Nova Scotia, Canada, and completed MFA studies in metalwork and jewelry in South Korea. Her work has been exhibited in Korea, Germany, Spain, Canada, and the United States.
