About the Artist
Working out of her studio nestled amongst cedar trees in the quiet Cascade foothills near Seattle, artist Eunice Kim creates exquisite collagraphs using a nontoxic printmaking technique that she invented. Each piece begins by forming tiny dot marks out of modeling paste, which are then shaped and polished entirely by hand. Next, Eunice inks and prints the matrices, setting them against cream-toned gampi fiber paper to introduce warmth and a glow to the imagery. The resulting compositions are an embodiment of serenity and tranquility, very much reflective of the meditative process which created them.
THE POROUS SERIES
Eunice's Porous series is a study in patterns, relationships and how individual entities come together. This extensive body of work began her fascination with dot-based imagery as well as her research into a safer, more sustainable approach to printmaking.
THE FIVE ELEMENTS SERIES
The Five Elements series, based on the Taoist principle of essential matter comprising all things, was completed during Eunice's artist residency in Kasterlee, Belgium. The series explores the relationship of interdependence, balance, and change between the five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water, each representing a phase in the cycle of life.
