Inconspicuous beauty

Sun-A Kim sees beauty in the smallest details embedded in the surrounding world. She seeks for the most exquisite patterns and textures found in inconspicuous things that encircle us daily, which she transforms into a unique body of work. Sun-A wishes to expose elements of things that are hidden or from which people are appalled and bring to light their charm. In her current body of work, she magnifies the intricate and delicate characteristics of insects and presents an elegant perspective on that which may be regarded as revolting. And in that way, Sun-A calls attention to a true nature of beauty that exists within both the unnoticed and the apparent, calling for pause and appreciation.
