Eunice Kim | Nature Stories

Davidson Galleries is pleased to present our fifth solo exhibition of Korean-born, Seattle artist Eunice Kim.  Internationally known for her signature dot-based imagery, Kim brings to the gallery a very special, all-new body of work sourcing reclaimed wood as her material and inspiration.

When the artist and her husband tore down a dilapidated barn on their rural studio grounds, she fell instantly in love with the weathered surfaces of old-growth timber that comprised the building.  Working strictly with what nature provides, Kim finds and coaxes out narratives from aged grains, knots, cracks, and imperfections -- a process best described as "meditation on seeing."  Printed entirely from actual specimens, resulting artworks celebrate innate characteristics and intrinsic beauty of reclaimed wood through exquisite minimalist aesthetic straddling abstraction and realism.

Quiet woods of Cascade Mountain foothills where the artist lives and works, too, is her muse.  "I feel extremely lucky to call this place home.  And more and more, I am directly informed by nature itself, which is at once both beautifully simple and complex.  It is this duality I strive to bring to my work," she says.  Nature Stories features over 30 intimate scale monoprints introducing the audience to artist's newfound passion and way of working.

This exhibition is made possible in part by grants from Puffin Foundation and Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.
