Tactics : Time Warp
Bohyeon Kim pushes the boundaries of painting by considering its sculptural aspects and exploring structure, materiality, and photogram. She integrates found objects and digital images into her work, especially elements that can reveal three-dimensional anthropomorphic identities and suggest surreal or mythological qualities. Bohyeon is pursuing the elegance of anxiety, or of excitation through the tropes of experimentation and pataphysics, examining and speculating on the dialectical relation between object and subject. Her practice to date has centered on deconstructed collages, concentrating on the layering of color, shape, texture, and digital prints, often extending on to walls and floors giving it a three-dimensional form.
