Pop Culture, 2014 • 164 Main Street
“I like to juxtapose the familiar with the unexpected. I like to create sculptures that people can relate to in their lives. I use objects that on the surface have no relationship to each other and compose them in a way that creates a harmonious narrative. This world is growing so fast that at times we may wish to protect and preserve our inner child. Pop culture changes so rapidly nowadays, almost like seasons in a year; yet we stay and stand through it all. A daily conflict arises between pop culture and our authentic selves. The forces of nature can erode even the grandest of structures. Must we be subjected to the same fate?” IK
Insun started as a landscape painter in the early 1980’s. It was working at Tallix Art Foundry in Peekskill, New York that she was first introduced to sculpture and from there she never looked back. Kim states, “There was something about sculpture and three dimensions that I was very attracted. to.” Over the years she has worked with clay, wax and plaster but her true love is working with metal. Kim started her own fine art foundry in 2005.
