Miseon Kim is an emerging artist whose painting is about the universal truths of impermanence and egolessness. After spending her twenties wandering around the world, seeking for a remedy for all the suffering and pain, Kim discovered the answer in the law of transience and oneness of the nature. After observing the changing nature of body and mind, she tries to paint the connectedness with the entire universe without her ego.
Kim received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her MFA from the same school. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
Art is an aesthetic language that I find effective to connect humanity. I have been asking myself “What is life?” and I am finding the answer in the transiency and oneness of nature. By nature, I do not mean just woods but everything, including us. The never ending circulation of life and death in all things, connected to each other, within the cosmos, is telling us the answer.
Images from the news and documentaries trigger controversial questions about life, and I search for the answers in the nature. Everything keeps moving, including myself. Water moves from rivers to the air and becomes clouds, then falls back to the land. Earth creatures drink the water, and it becomes part of their body. From sunrise to sunset, from spring to winter, all coexist in a single picture plane. Although everything keeps changing, there is something that never changes.
