Art is about paying attention ... Laurie Anderson
Binna Kim’s detailed and stimulating artwork is a mixture of nature and her vivid imagination.
Her attention to detail is meant to bring someone to a different world where they can observe nature up close and take a moment to be at peace with themselves.
From walking down a city street, taking a trip into the woods or watching the waves at a beach,
Binna aims to capture nature in many different forms through her curiosity and her eye for beauty that nature has to offer.
Her main medium for drawings is pencils. She thinks it brings best in terms of showing details and softness in drawings. For paintings, she uses water-based mediums such as Acrylic paints, ink and pens.
Binna’s Serenity series was created to take you on a journey on the ocean. Water is an element that evokes different feelings such as serenity and rage. The ocean can also be considered an entity that no one has control over. People who view this series can witness the many different forms that the ocean can have. People can view these different forms the ocean takes and relate it to their own lives.
Her The Universe in a leaf series shows her pure curiosity in nature.
As a floral designer, she has always been surrounded by beautiful flowers and natural materials.
People only pay attention to flowers, but she noticed leaves are also as beautiful as flowers.
Her intention of this series is to evoke people's feelings and imagination.
