This event has ended.

The Paradise Between exhibition demonstrating artist Hee Sook Kim’s affinity for hybrid identities opens at Causey Contemporary. This exhibition, featuring Hee Sook’s mixed media paintings which combine western oil colors with Asian watercolors and glass beads, is Hee Sook’s fourth solo show with the gallery since beginning to work with Causey Contemporary in 1999.

Critic John Goodman, in his recent essay on Hee Sook Kim, says that “Kim interweaves classical and modernist stances that are inspiring, leaving her viewers with a sense of interior calm and even joy taken from everyday life. Kim’s interest in cultural history anchors images at home in both the past and present. She salvages an ancient aesthetic, rendering its emotive memory alive and relevant within current artistic forms….She offers her audience the best of historical awareness, coupled with a remarkable feeling for contemporary issues and interest. She has made it clear that she intends to return to Korean matters as a simple demonstration of her complex identity - an Asian artist in a Western world.”
