Christine Kim works in cut paper art to create layered collages, sculptures and installations. She is interested in permeable boundaries that take the shape of fences, lace and patterned screens. She lives and works in Toronto as artist and educator. Her artwork revolves around portraiture and figures whose gestures have a quiet stillness. The cutting process is a subtractive one, leaving an element of mystery because all that remains are fragments. Cut paper art has always fascinated her because of this fragility and intricacy. The figures that remain were cut away but also the botanical patterns offer some shelter. It is the friction between what is lost and what remains where she explores brokenness and resilience.
