About Mindful

Off-white felt is delicately marbled with charcoal silkscreen lines in this playful relief by Chung-Im Kim. The artist cuts the fabric into irregular pieces and then sews them together with fine stitches into a hat/brain shape. Delicate white threads curl and spring from its edges.

"For me, patterns are hard to ignore as I encounter everyday life. Whether the source comes from nature, historical context or plainly created by me, working with patterns always gives me the thrill of entering a new world. " Chung-Im Kim
