L.E. Kim

American, born 1974

In pared-down drawings, prints, and assemblages, Laura Kim critiques and unsettles expectations and assumptions about the processes of drawing: its history, its materials, and its boundaries. Using contemporary digital-printing techniques in a manner similar to artists like Wade Guyton and Ben Schumacher, Kim incorporates contemporary materials like Inkjet printing and Fujiflex Crystal Archive substrates, as well as traditional materials like 35mm slides and ink on Japanese paper. Her work features stripes, grid patterns, and reconfigured geometric forms that not only incorporate elements of chance, but also display the artist’s thoughtful hand in their execution. Balancing minimalist forms and lines with gestural mark-making, Kim’s practice straddles the twin concerns of mechanical precision and DIY wonkiness held by artists working in the digital age.
