Young Bae Kim’s paintings combine the meditative tranquility of the eastern tradition with the realist techniques of the Dutch masters. He creates luminous images that are filled with hope and the promise of renewal. Windows open onto a scene of lush greenery, stairs ascend into light, curtains sway in the breeze, water droplets ripple a still pond, a woman leans out a window. Beneath these moments there is a sense of anticipation, of a quiet energy flowing through the scene. Kim’s paintings reveal the beauty of transition, of change within apparent stillness, urging us to pause a moment and observe the world around us.
