"hoW aM I - ?"
Walking on the street in a city lets you see people who are likely to be emotionless as if all four seasons are frozen and just cold. There is no truth in people's eyes. We have lost our genuine emotional expressions and have allowed ourselves to become more artificial because we want to protect ourselves while living in an ambiguous and unpredictable life. I miss the real faces hidden under those emotionless or covered faces. So I paint the face, which may have disappeared and again appeared, dimly vanished as I blink my eyes.. www.leehyunkim.com

Using a selection of collected plastic dolls, I have created hypothetical situations. My subjects are suggesting something naive, innocent and childlike, while I have placed them into seductive and lasvious vignettes. The viewer then becomes the voyeur...watching the voyeur that is in fact a toy. Who is being toyed with?

The perceptual shift I experience while moving through the woods is explored in this series of three-dimensional topographic contour reliefs with painted natural forms found in cast shadows. The contours of the land that surround me exist in my mind on a macro scale, while light and shadow weave me into the micro-environment. The viewer’s perception oscillates as well: with a slight shift of the head the three-dimensional form of the topography is flattened by foliage patterns, then pops forward again as the mind makes sense of spatial data.
