"Depending on the arrangement, and by using gradients of width, interval, tone and contrast, illusory spatial phenomena can appear and significantly influence our perception of forms. My methods of making, and the clay body I use, are constant sources of inspiration and challenge, and have led to the creation of new and increasing numbers of tonal ranges from white to black, and new illusionary phenomena, through the medium of ceramics."
PLEASE JOIN US FOR A TALK BY JIN ABOUT HIS NEW COLLECTION ON SATURDAY 3RD OF JULY WHICH WILL BE LIVE STREAMED HERE -
Jin Eui Kim's ceramic works explore the way in which our perception of three-dimensional forms can be manipulated through the arrangement of surface tones. His works are hand-thrown and painted on the wheel, or coiled or assembled in blocks using different tonal clays, in order to create works that influence our visual and spatial perception.
This exhibition also includes a series of framed works, titled 'The Flow on Cubes', which have been created using slip-casting techniques and arranged in patterns that appear differently when viewed from different angles and depths. The development of these works was facilitated by a grant from the Arts Council of Wales to support artists during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
