Artist StatementDesign, in many ways, is about being consistent. Consistency is necessary to promote a brand or market a product, but at times can be suffocating. Moving to Texas a year ago, I was immediately fixated on the expanse of the Texas sky and its diverse cloud formations. Since that time I’ve taken thousands of no-filter photographs of the sky using my iPhone. Responding to the imagery, the photo/content combinations in this series are created by arranging photographs (without retouching the imagery) in varying configurations, at times, using text to influence the viewer’s quest to find meaning in the works. While the images used are consistently of the same subject, the process of rearranging them allows me to create new, unique forms and meaning – and frees me from the limitations so often imposed by the need for consistency.
Volunteer & Special ProjectsA strong advocate for Israel, traveling there each year since 2006, Kim is the past Arts & Community Task Force Chair for the U.S. Central Area Consortium (a 14 city group partnering with Budapest and the Western Galilee) of Partnership2Gether. She helped create a framework for numerous art and community related programs with the purpose of connecting people in the U.S. to the Western Galilee area of Israel and Budapest. Kim was president-elect and served on the Board of Directors for the Schwalb Center for Israel & Jewish Studies at the University of Omaha, she is a past member of the Board of Directors for the Texas Jewish Arts Association. Kim has been a five-time Artist in Residence in the Western Galilee and is currently planning a multicultural music exchange program that will be a 7-day intensive program in Israel designed for serious violin and viola students.
