KIM CHAN-IL

The recent works of Chan Il Kim emphasize much more on objects and post painterly abstraction. He adhered objects and oil paints doggedly and then minced them thinly. The skin-like canvas dramatically stimulate the viewer’s senses of touch and sight. Kim’s works are flitting on the boundary of sculpture and painting to obscure it. Eventually, they have a new physical property. These bas-relief paintings are not only optical but also kinetic. Interestingly, Kim is riding the crest of art history and at the same time. getting his own way. – Excerpt from critic by Park,Young Taek (Art Critic,Kyonggi Univ)
