Painting: Oil, Gesso, Paint on Canvas.
These paintings feature fighting politicians, their faces comically contorted. Are their exaggerated expressions real? Or are they merely playing, posing for the cameras, for us?
Painting within a discourse of social analysis, a process of clipping media images, and classifying her subjects, Suhyun Kim challenges our sense of emotional honesty. Her images debate accountability and guilt, forcing us to question our complicity.Like photographs as witness to personal stories, her paintings depict individuals as universal archetypes, simultaneously complex and simple, like each of us.
