Toronto-based artist Christine Kim.
Paper constitutes the form and material of experimentation in the mixed-media collages of Toronto-based artist Christine Kim. Paper is not only a surface for graphite. as Kim explores the act of drawing by interrogating its materiality through layering drawing and cutting. In this new body of work, Kim explores the human body and nature. By layering drawing on top of drawing and destroying the original illustration through cutting, Kim examines the surface, shape and volume to conceal and reveal glimmers of a portrait. Flesh and fabric fall into shadows, into the dark recesses of an elusive memory, into an unknown narrative. Kim presents the haunting beauty of decay, brokenness and fragmentation. The paper is used as surface, screen, and shadow to speak of shelter and intimacy.
