FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Carrie Able Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition of Sky Kim's work at Pulse Art Fair 2017. The fair will take place Thursday December 7- Sunday December 10th at Indian Beach Park in Miami Beach Florida.
Sky Kim's series of meticulous, labor-intensive watercolor paintings are at once abstract, anatomical, spiritual and sensual. Whether it be stunning watercolor scrolls or smaller scale drawings, Sky Kim's work reveals her technical mastery and unique compositional elements.
"The idea of energy onstantly flowing without a beginning or an end has become the focus of my work, coming to life through various motifs that recall what I describe as the spinning wheel of life….. My work demands an undivided focus and intense concentration. I work in a meditative and trance like state so my studio practice is like a form of VISUAL MEDITATION. When I record my being and my spiritual journey in my work, no time exists other than the present moment, and each moment is vibrant with sensation. Everything, including life or death occurs in the present moment. Therefore, the moment of now is timeless and abundant. Our ability to see and hear depends upon our detection of energy traveling at different wavelengths of vibration. Vision and sound are the products of atomic particles in space colliding with one another and emitting patterns of energy. I simply capture these patterns of energy, the residue of my vibration in my work. Everything around us, about us, among us, within us, and between us is made of atoms and molecules vibrating in space. Although we define our self as solid, we are made of trillions of cells, gallons of water and ultimately everything about us exists in a constant and dynamic state of activity and movement in the name of evolving process”Sky Kim’s work was first included in the Carrie Able Gallery inaugural group exhibition “rind” in Oct 2016 and the artist is preparing for her solo exhibition at Carrie Able Gallery opening in September 2018. The Carrie Able Gallery located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, showcases the work of renowned oil on linen artist, Carrie Able, amongst the most exciting visual artists. The artists showcased are discovered via open submission policy and are evaluated by Lead Curator, Damien Anger, based solely on the art itself without consideration of CV or biographical information. While a commercial gallery, Carrie Able Gallery is mission based. The chalk board front door of the space showcases an ongoing community ephemeral art project. The gallery also hosts free monthly art classes for 8-12 year olds as well as a free monthly event, Living Arts Night, where poets and musicians are welcome to share their work. The Carrie Able Gallery is a proud partner of the National Parks Arts Foundation.
