Kim Seryung "The Butterfly inside of Flower," 2015, Collagraphy, monotype, 55 x 55 cm
Korean artist Seryung Kim’s first solo show will be on view at the Tachibana Gallery in Tokyo from April 5 to 16, 2017. Kim grew up in a small rural area in South Korea where she was always playing with flowers and butterflies, which she took as rich sources of inspiration for her art. Now she explores various shapes of petals, textures of butterfly wings, organic colors, and movements of flora and fauna in her works.
Kim’s primary mediums are abstract collagraphy, monotype and wood cut. She uses monotype by hand painting for diverse color and creates collagraphs with many kinds of materials such as sand, glue, string and paper for various textures and values. These multiple layers of monotype, collagraphy and woodcut reveal the unique descriptions of her organic world in her “Garden”. This exhibition will present around fourteen works by Kim.
