Myeongeom Kim

Even at the best of times, the diametric worlds of man and nature have a difficult time getting along with each other.  Man has the innate desire to manipulate and control, nature requires you play by the rules; man would rather cheat.  South Korean artist, Myeongeom Kim tries to blur the demarcation between the synthetic and natural in his work, substituting an appendage here, a branch system there.  Trees give flower to a tuft of balloons, a chair, an axe.  Kim prefers to focus on the graceful union his dreamscapes compose instead of the common warring that nature and industry create.  In his art the two meet hand to glove, finishing each others sentences, playing leap frog, floating beautifully in the ether just before the rope snaps.
