Kim’s desire is to find and develop his aesthetic sense by focusing on the relationship of the old and the new. The interest in this relationship is gets wider and wider until it reaches humanity, nature and space. Daily, he creates a new hand-built vessel or mask. The works, in accumulation act as a type of diary, or as he describes it a call to listen to an inner voice. In listening, he presents works that explore identity and psychological conditions through the marking and making of daily life.
