The subjects of Myong Hi Kim’s oil pastel painting range from small experiences of everyday life to dark memories of Korean history. Since 1990, an abandoned schoolhouse in a remote mountainous area near the DMZ has been her home and the locus of her artistic creation. Through her work, Kim offers commentary not only on the issues of representation but also their social and cultural connections.
