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!

    • KimKei

      Thank you, Ben.

      • 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!

“Shroud” by Artist Douglas Goldberg

Alarm Clock

 

Love this series! New York-based artist Douglas Goldberg covers everyday objects beneath drape-like coverings sculpted from stone. Each of the concealed items, ranging from night-lights to a pill bottle, symbolize one of Goldberg’s personal fears. See more images from “Shroud” below or on display at Ulterior Gallery until February 26th.
