Bukang Kim
For Bukang Yu Kim, unlike many other artists of her generation, the landscape is not a neutral value, a familiar armature upon which to construct a web of abstract brushstrokes possessing their own form and meaning. Rather it is anemotional trigger, her immediate and deeply felt response to which engenders a broad range of feelings, from a sense of longing and loss for the pleace she left as a young woman to a sense of possibility, of her desire to reach beyond the familiar confines of home studio. What is suprising, and truly impressive, when one reviews a number of her landscapes is not only how powerfully emotive but also how varied they are.
