Moon Hee Kim

Through the medium of paint, metal, and clay, my works discuss the scientific inquiry on rising sea levels and the more significant implications of everyday behavior in society leading to climate change. By producing still-life paintings and objects from observing site-specific and site-responsive installations, I explore how the environment, society, and culture are linked with the issues of climate change. The still-life paintings and objects are a carefully constructed reality that manifests the way in which I relate to the world.
