Kibong Rhee In the Studio


Tina Kim Gallery visits painter Kibong Rhee in his studio. Watch Rhee's unique process to achieve a perfect sense of the ephemeral in his hazy, dreamlike landscape paintings, as he layers painted plexiglass and sheer fabric above the canvas to create a convincing optical depth. The artist’s works on canvas reflect his interest in a continual state of disappearing and taking form—a phenomenon he has likened to water flowing.
