Interested in the manifestation of images that are poetic and engaged with idealistic and romantic sentiments, my work draws upon memory and nostalgia, while employing the language of landscape, yearnings toward myth and a transformed history, and realms between the real and unreal.” Laura Kim

In an era of giant grandiose paintings anyone will appreciate the poetic delicacy of Laura Kim. It may be against the current fashion but by essence fashion doesn’t last. Laura Kim is precisely in the center of a very unique body of work she reveals drawing after drawing. BCh

With Laura Kim, the time is different. Each single drawing and painting requires a long time to lecture each detail. Like with a poem
