Wonsook Kim (b.1950 | Korean) is a Korean artist who moved to America in 1972 and has since expanded and developed her practice to cover the varying media of painting, drawing, print, and sculpture. Her work resembles suggestive and poetic diary entries in a dreamlike, symbolic
landscape. Mastery of line is at play, complemented by the delicate use of shadow and pattern. Figure and ground are often diffused, serving to enhance the imposition of an oblique narrative in the work.
She has exhibited extensively throughout her career, both in the United States and abroad. In1995 her work was selected as the official artwork of a United Nations stamp.
