Art Description

Sculpture: Stone, Paper, Plastic, Oil and Acrylic on Plastic, Stone and Other.

Miniature cartoon character toys have now become a culture and Kim So-ri had a lot of concern for creating artworks with them.
He wanted to approach to them as an artist rather than just a modeler. He did not care much about the hard, standardized components or such an issue as how perfectly they could be reproduced.
The matter of paramount importance for him was 'How well therir meanings could be conveyed'. Most boys experience such 'work' as assembling or repairing in their childhood.
Kim So-ri does not only reproduce and own the objects he used to make in his childhood. But he shares his old memories and emotions drawn from the old time and space and suggests the most trendy culture sublimated info his 'artworks'
