Lucy Kim's work investigates the boundaries of object and image. Her process combines aluminum foil, the kind commonly used in cooking, with oil painting and molding/casting techniques to create works that play with the surface of objects and figures in formulations influenced by pop imagery. Lucy Kim received her BFA from RISD in 2001, and her MFA from Yale in 2007. She received the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship to attend the Yale Norfolk Summer Progam in 2000, and in 2007 received the Carol Scholsberg Memorial Prize from Yale University. She has held residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Studios Midwest, and the MacDowell Colony. She has recently exhibited her work at Tiger Strikes Asteroid (Philadelphia), Regina Rex (Queens), Haskins Research Lab (New Haven), Vaudeville Park (Brooklyn), Slag Gallery (NYC), and the Wassaic Project (Wassaic).
