Kim Hee Kyung
An Elegant and Refined Formative Language that Expresses the Joy of Life
Kim Hee-Kyung expresses the light of life emitted by nature by means of abstract language. Each and every single one of her works aspires to be an independent and yet perfect form. Her works are of absolutely natural
forms, and are very neat, simple, and abstract. One cannot readily determine what any one of her works is, but they all seem familiar to us because they recall some part of our visual experience.
We cannot find any trace of pain or contrivance in the creation of Kim Huigyeong’s works whatsoever. Although the surfaces of her works are rough, we get an impression that her works are delicate and tender as a whole. It is not by chance that her works project soft, slow, and elegant emotion, and their simple, clear forms are calming and make us feel visually stable. It is never easy for an artist to find such implicative
formative beauty. Without keen aesthetic sensitivity with an artistic temperament, no one can neatly define the astounding formative beauty as is seen in the works of Kim Hui-gyeong. Her art is formative language combined with earnest observation, exploration, and long meditation.
Her recent works are of extremely simple geometric structures. Her early works adapted forms of nature, and these gradually gave way to simpler and clearer forms. The image of the circle, the most complete of all forms,
is the basic of the formative language she pursues. Most of her works are of simple structures with gentle and elegant curves that are nearly circular. Each individual work is of an independent beautiful form. Of course, she produces works which combine two or three independent forms. Even in such cases, the whole piece has a strong sense of unity. This means that she had already discovered the perfect formative order.
