About the Work
An off white root system silk screened on felt trails across the surface of this contemplative fabric wall sculpture by Chung-Im Kim. The white felt is cut into irregular rectangles then sewn back together with precise stitches into a loose grid of valleys and peaks. "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. A pattern can grow into a complex image jungle or a well disciplined ornamental beauty. These recent works explore the chaotic order resulting from many small pieces containing broken images. I tend to see each of these parts as an independent soul containing unique power and energy that then together becomes an entity as cells to a body. I hope to evoke the birthing tension when all are gathered."
