Gestures in Color-Space (...) The color blue, usually said to be soothing and calm, is redefined by Tschoon Su KIM . The energetic and gestural application of paint with sometimes marked internal structures is expressive and impulsive in a controlled way, but not as an expression of a tortured self, rather of the creative spirit; a gestural abstraction, a variant of action painting: The energy of the performance is communicated to the viewer, who realizes that they are manifest. Aesthetically, KIM lives in a painterly cosmos of blue, which, to us, is a likeness of the cosmos and its harmony. That is meaningful indeed.
