Statement

Lacey Kim was born and grew up in South Korea. After graduating from Seoul Women’s University with a Bachelors in Fine Arts (2003), she pursued an international education, completing an MA at Nottingham Trent University in the UK (2007), and an MFA from the Pratt Institute in New York (2009). Kim’s work has been exhibited globally in cities like New York, Chicago, Vienna, Miami and Seoul, and she has lived and worked on three continents. Her non-representational style has attracted attention from critics and galleries worldwide. Today Kim is based in New York.

 

My work is expressed through lines. The "Lines" in my work act as both a means and an expression of" my being free". Their various forms—sometimes curved, other times straighter—reflect a deep awareness of movement, speed and space. I strive to engage with viewers on the basis of something that exists across the borders of our consciousness, and to engender the infiniteness of the world through the language of lines.

The spatial effect created by various layers pushes the viewer’s senses to transcend the two-dimensional world of painting. Lines and colors combine to form images with new energy, new potential, meeting one another freely and creating unexpected forms.

My work follows the flow of my unconscious mind. I believe that unconscious gestures are distinct from random ones: these intuitive gestures simply follow plans and patterns that are beyond our understanding. This delicate balance—between conscious and unconscious, the real and relative, free flowing and rule-based action—can be found in my paintings. The mode of expression itself represents a paradox of order and entropy.
