Soo Kim (born South Korea, 1969) moved to Los Angeles in 1980. After earning a bachelor of arts degree from the University of California, Riverside, she combined studies in critical writing, art and film at the California Institute of the Arts for her master of fine arts.
Kim's practice as an artist blends the making of photographs with the critical interpretation of images on a broader level. Recent bodies of work employ the techniques of cutting and layering prints, introducing areas of absence or disruption to address the issues of photographic transparency and the immediate consumption of images. Kim believes that the lengthy process required to create her photographs infuses them with a "slowness" that finds its counterpart in the amount of time it takes the viewer to read them. Soo is represented by Angles Gallery in Los Angeles, and Julie Saul Gallery in NY.
Upcoming shows: solo at Angles in January 2011; Snapshots in Prose / Prose in Snapshots, SF Camerawork, San Francisco, 2011; Paper Landscapes, Indianapolis Museum of Art, 2012. Thank You Soo!
