Fragmented feelings: illustrated paper cut works by Christine Kim

Toronto-based artist Christine Kim creates beautiful artworks blending juxtaposed figurative drawings of women resting in deep feelings with intricate floral paper cut pieces.

By layering drawing on top of drawing and destroying the original illustration through cutting, Kim examines the surface, shape and volume to conceal and reveal glimmers of a portrait. Flesh and fabric fall into shadows, into the dark recesses of an elusive memory, into an unknown narrative. Kim presents the haunting beauty of decay, brokenness and fragmentation. The paper is used as surface, screen, and shadow to speak of shelter and intimacy.
