Sculptures and Paintings by Artist Kim Kei

Mimesis 6

Here are some absolutely gorgeous sculptures by artist Kim Kei. She alters found objects and natural debris, through painting and sculpting them. She photographs various iterations of these pieces, and the photographs become finished works as well as provide the foundation for her paintings.

I enjoy looking at her paintings but there is something so striking about these photos of the sculptures. Another fine example of the amazing work being submitted to our August Submissions post. See lots more images below!

        What materials are you using for the sculptures, Kim Kei? I love that they are debris!

      • KimKei

        Thank you, Steph. Please forgive me for the delay in my reply. I often use items that are distressed from use or natural elements. Tattered clothing, threads, sea tumbled shells and drift wood.

    Woah! That’s beautiful work, and I also love the fact you create such vividly coloured and intriguingly unrecognisable forms from worn out rubbish! “Distressed”, as you say, the way the sea distresses the shore and the flotsam etc. And the way the sculptures are lit for the photos invokes a movement in the forms which makes them almost alive, like a dancer swirling in fascinating clothing. I love the colours you achieve!

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

OK Go’s Impressive New Music Video Shot in Zero Gravity

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
