Kim Hyun Sik imbues flat enamel planes with depth and texture, working in the realm between painting and sculpture. His body of work includes hyperrealistic images of the backs of women’s heads, trompe l’oeil waterfall landscapes, and vibrant, monochrome fields of color that put a modern spin on traditional Korean and East Asian painting. Hyun Sik’s work questions the seen and unseen, suggesting ambiguous narratives. His use of resin draws viewers’ eyes to the surface and encourages them to look deeper and meditate on the image’s many layers and spaces in between, not unlike the Japanese notion of “ma” (negative space).
