Jin Eui Kim uses subtle tones of colour and monochrome applied to the surface of ceramics to explore how perception can be altered.


 He graduates each line and uses different types of width, interval, tone and spacing to create various impressions to the eye. Jin will be giving a detailed talk about his work and processes at Bluecoat Display Centre at 5.00pm on Light Night (Fri 13th May).

Jin says of his works "My work explores how the perception of three-dimensional ceramic forms can be manipulated by the application of arrangements of bands on their surfaces. Depending on the arrangement of tonal bands, using gradients of width, interval or tone and contrast, illusory spatial phenomena can appear and thus significantly influence the actual three-dimensional forms.

The duration of viewer’s attention, viewer’s position, tone or colour of the background are also crucial influencing factors for the creation of such illusions. The illusory phenomena created in these ways are intended to be intriguing, to capture the viewer’s imagination, and to offer new possibilities for the decoration of ceramic artworks."

His work was recently featured in the ‘Ornament‘ exhibition area of Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair 2015 in Manchester. Bluecoat Display Centre are delighted to exhibit his work for the month of May in 2016.
