Clara Kim

Rebuilding the Destruction No.3

36cm x 36cm \ Mixed Media \ 2020

“ Her inspiration for her work is based on the emotional and psychological sufferings of women, the initial blow, the shattering of the known life, and the resilience to place the pieces back together in a new way. Her medium of expression is in the way common materials are used but focuses on the arrangement to shine a different light. This unique hue of expression permeated in her work is the result of her experiences of her life in Seoul and Toronto and also many years in Italy.”

To take a common material like paper or nails, and impose force, by ripping or smashing, or crumbling it. Though shattered to pieces, often involuntary, the rearrangement of the pieces is her focus. With this archetype, she creates collages and paintings in an abstract and conceptual manner, expressing the delicate femininity which transforms experiences into beauty and strength.                                                                                                                                                                                                            


Weeping willow

72cm x 48cm \ Mixed Media on Wood Panel \ 2022

Weeping willow.A painting of abstraction in the minimal form tocreate peaceful silence when gazing at a majestic weeping willow, asthe leaves flutter in the wind, whilst its dance is multiplied in color by the sun and shade.The painting is large but it had to be.I wanted to recreate nature, not in its vast entirety but from a rayof my perspective.


48cm x 36cm \ Mixed Media on Wood Panel \ 2018

Expression of my mood in melancholia through the image of the ocean is the concept of this piece.The vast blue space, as the sunlight gives colors to the waves, is expressed with papers dyed with shades of blue and intentionally spaced out to the surface. Each piece is unique as each wave is unique.

Pattern No.1

1of 12cm x 9cm, 2of 12cm x 10cm \ Mixed Media \ 2021

Clara Kima is a Toronto-based artist, born and raised in Seoul, Korea, and graduated as a music major. Later accepted to the conservatory of music in L’Aquila Italy. Feeling restricted in music alone, she is a graduate of the bachelor of fine arts program at OCAD U in Toronto Canada. Her inspiration for her work is based on the emotional and psychological sufferings of women. Her medium of expression uses common material but focuses on arranging the pieces to create different colours or shadows depending on lighting, by tearing or crushing the materials to create individual shapes. With this archetype, she creates collages and paintings in an abstract and conceptual manner, expressing the tender femininity which transforms trauma or pain into beauty and strength. These works of art are characterized by the psychological experience of the artist, represented through art. Such as "Self Figurative" and "Man" by Figurative, both are highly acclaimed. Her No Title series, Pattern series, Rebuilding the Destructionseries and Colour series all present a new artistic personality that is quite different from her previous works. Among them, "Patter No.1" "No Title No.1" and "Rebuilding the Destruction No.3" showed the unique characteristics of Korean simplicity and aesthetics. With the delicacy and patience of a female artist, she catches the eye of the audience with her clever lines, emotional colors and thought-provoking artistic conception.

About the exhibition

Art is a language that doesn’t need translation. For a long time, art has played an important role in the communication between China and other countries. In the context of economic globalization, cultures from all over the world collide and fuse with each other, forming a multi-cultural network. Chinese culture and various cultures of other countries meet here, forming a strong and diverse artistic atmosphere As globalization makes the cultural and artistic exchanges between countries more frequent and more closely connected, the optimization of the international artistic ecological environment also provides new opportunities for the evolution of art. Art is enriched by exchanges and mutual learning; the development of art requires international exchanges and cooperation, the active participation of artists from all countries, the sharing of ideas, the collision of hearts and the blending of emotions.This initiative is hosted by the Sino-Canada Alliance of Arts and Culture,York University Centre for Asian Research, Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology, the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts gallery, and the School of Visual Communication Design of LAFA, with funds from the Canada-China Initiative Grant from York Centre for Asian Research, and Double first-class project approved by Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts.
