  • Harmony by Su Bok Kim: A Pointillism View of Nature
  • See how countless dots, points, and tiny circles of various colors come together to form one bigger picture at Harmony, the 10th solo exhibition of Korean visual artist Su Bok Kim on June 30, 2018, at ArtistSpace Ayala Museum, Makati City!

    HARMONY shows Kim’s lively and abstract impressionist view of nature. She draws out segments of forests and gives attention to every single detail. She paints trees of different seasons: from forest floors filled with leaves to lush green springs to bright trees against dark night skies. A love and respect for the complexities of nature are quite clear in her works.

    The images are painted in pleasant shades of rose pink, lush green, bright blues, and bright oranges that instantly bring the beauty of different seasons to mind. Despite consisting of endless dots and points, the paintings all blend together in harmony just as nature does. 

    The artist’s love for trees is at the heart of this exhibition. She paints not only the forests she has seen and felt but also compares relationships of humans with nature. Just as branches grow gnarled and tangled, and just as diverse plants grow in one place, so do humans. Human relationships grow complicated, tangled up, and bring us to pain all because of our differences and our inability to find harmony together. Through this, the artist gains inspiration from nature in another way – she overlaps her strokes, takes in every unique dot and detail, all to reach and create her own new dimension—one that begins and ends with nature.
