Lucy Kim, raised between South Korea, Myanmar, and the United States, lives and works in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She is the recipient of the Carol Schlosberg Memorial Prize and the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship from Yale, as well as the Boston Artadia Award.
Her process involves life casting an object in plastic, and then recasting and remolding it until the original source becomes unrecognizable. Kim then paints over the casts, lending a handmade touch to what would otherwise appear to be a manufactured image. Her work is full of symbolism as well as studies of form and space.
