Korean-born artist Eunice Kim is internationally recognized printmaker whose work is found at the intersection of rigorous minimalist aesthetic, innovative technique, and singular commitment to sustainable methodologies.
Raised in Seoul by fastidious and strong-minded grandmother who had immeasurable impact on her formation, Kim was transplanted to the US at age ten. She earned her BA from California State University Long Beach, followed by graduate studies at San Francisco State University and fellowship at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley. Best known for meticulously realized dot-based imagery, artist's newest series finds material and inspiration in reclaimed wood -- repurposing and giving second life to salvaged timber.
Widely exhibited nationally and abroad, her works are held in public, private, and corporate collections worldwide and represented by galleries in Seattle, Portland, and Paris. She is a recipient of numerous awards, including multiple 4Culture Grants, Alaska Percent for Art Commission, Artist Trust Grants for Artists' Progress, Arts Council for Long Beach Individual Artist Grant, Flemish Ministry of Culture Residency Award, Kala Art Institute Fellowship Award, The Puffin Foundation Grant, and Puffin Foundation West Grant.
Kim lives and maintains studio in Cascade Mountain foothills of rural Seattle, where forests, rivers, and wildlife abound. This proximity to the natural world deeply informs, shapes, and facilitates her work.
