Byron Kim

My current work has been focused on the of transformation and ‘completion’ of the weathered, decayed and discarded. Also present is the re-presenting of materials that are generally viewed as ordinary to reveal an unexpected depth and beauty both physically and in meaning. My work in sculpture and mixed media began during graduate studies in architecture with the exploration of the relationship and the connection or joining of varying material. These studies allow for the development of a kind of specialized language, a language in which the vocabulary and grammar are derived by my particular view of the materials. This allows for a unique statement about an issue or concept being considered told through the language of materials themselves.
