The clever and uplifting sculptures of Korean artist Kim Young Min will be on view as a solo exhibition at Kate Oh Gallery in July. Entitled ‘The Pursuit of Happiness‘, this mother of three children often uses the theme ‘happiness’ in her work.
“We face so many hard moments in life and I came to think about how we can overcome those moments. If we take a step backward from the moments and think more positively, we may solve things more wisely,” Kim said. “My works may look bright and fun at a glance, but they also embody the attitude about our lives.”
“I seek for ordinary subjects from our lives so that many people would easily empathize with my art and get comfort from my works. It was important for me that people and passersby enjoy art whether they majored in art or not,” Kim told The Korea Herald.
Kim Gyoung Min: The Pursuit of Happiness will be on view from July 5 to July 16, 2022 at Kate Oh Gallery, with an Opening Reception on July 5th from 6-8pm. The gallery is located at 31 East 72nd Street, NYC. RSVP for Opening Reception.
