The relationship between the lone character in Jin Kims work and the elaborately decorated surrounding space that fills the canvas around him is central to the heavily painted concept of foreignness and belonging that the artist so often focuses on. This reoccurring figure, commonly regarded as a self-portrait, is too small to be noticed amongst the stereotypically British landscape or interior backgrounds, and too big to be completely harmonized with its surroundings, unearthing Jin Kims discomfort as a bystander between his native Korean culture, and current residency in London.
