Po Kim: Making Impossible Demands on Art

Media

In the course of his career, painter Po Kim  worked in three distinct modes, gestural abstraction, realist still-life and symbolist figuration. This talk will examine each of these periods and look at how Po Kim's work related to the art of the period, especially that of other artists working in New York. I will also seek to understand the motives that sparked his stylistic restlessness, and ask whether his early experiences of war and violence in Korea and Japan may have helped inspire his evident faith in the power of art.
