Weiza Kim

Gallery d’Arte, 547 West 27th Street, Suite 518 New York City proudly presents Wheiza Kim: Dialogue with Nature-Message from the Wind.

The Solo Exhibition will run from January 12-23, 2016 with an Opening Reception on Thursday, January 14th from 5-8PM.


Wheiza Kim lives in the woods near the ocean where the wind drifts around. While relaxing, she can hear the whistle of the wind from the ocean and the woods around her house. The wind tells her stories about the unknown world of distance. With a low-pitched whistling sound, the woods convey the way that human lives are beautiful but also painful and how everything in the world is transient. Kim says “My intention is to decipher ‘the message of the universe delivered by the wind’ which has been engraved in wood grains like some secret codes and then visualize it”.

Kim creates artworks reflecting human life and mind in the order of Yin and Yang based on the philosophy of Chi (energy). Kim also conveys the meaning of impermanence delivered by the wind that all of conditional existence without exception is an illusion that fluctuates according to conditions and relationships, or a state of mind that interprets the given situation. Therefore, Kim produces art that is analogous to these varying and uncertain stages by using mirrors, which break away from the general flat-surface canvas style.



Through this exhibition Kim represents a uniquely shaped canvas into the three dimensional space, making for works of art that are literally as well as metaphorically shelters, using various patterns and geometric compositions. Kim uses a natural wooden panel as a canvas, and places mirrors at different angles on the surface, and in back of the wooden panel. In this way, Kim holds landscapes and stories in one work and invites viewers to observe inside and outside of the artwork as one continuous movement in which outer and inner spaces are united. Another words, the infinite has merged with the introspective, like the visual effect of “Mobius Loops”.
