salty barricades : artist siyeon kim

Another artist at the Satori Gallery that caught my attention on Sunday was Siyeon Kim. This up and coming Korean artist's work is about conveying a sense of anxiety (I can relate) as well as humor as it pertains to psychological conflicts within the home environment. There's tension in the precarious placement of household objects. I loved the sharp forms (made of salt, apparently). I enjoy these as visual compositions too — monochromatic interior landscapes.

Go see it, including the window installation (bottom photo) at the Gallery Satori in the LES.
