Bukang Y. Kim:
Journey to the East
November 7, 2020–August 15, 2021
This exhibition is an immersive installation of paintings by Bukang Y. Kim, the internationally recognized Cincinnati-based artist. Inspired by the universal features of nature, Kim’s paintings blend abstraction and naturalism and create a rich dialogue between East and West. The series of 10 paintings is based on the sublime Siberian landscape. Shown publicly for the first time, the paintings offer a singular meditative experience.
