How many exhibition works:
The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present a solo show by Wansoo Kim. In his New York City debut, Kim joins traditional and contemporary vessel forms with unconventional ornamentation to encourage us to think about metaphysical dichotomies such as what is visible versus invisible, internal versus external, and known versus unknown. Kim inverts what would typically be the inside and the outside of the vessels by embellishing the interiors with hand-painted designs or high reliefs. These designs draw in the viewer, while the height and narrowness of the vessels restrict full access to them, reminding us to think about what we choose to withhold or divulge in our lives and how much of the world around us is beyond our perception.
Kim is a Tennessee-based artist who earned his MFA from the University of Nebraska and his BFA from Seoul National University of Science and Technology. Recent solo exhibitions include Watkins College of Art at Belmont University (Nashville, TN; 2022), The New Gallery at Austin Peay State University (Clarksville, TN; 2021), and E. Bronson Ingram Studio Arts Center (Nashville, TN; 2020). He is an assistant professor of ceramics at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee.
