Kim Sunhee

<The Dreaming Girl>


It was at the beach one day when a luminescent rainbow dashed through the clear blue sky; a vibrant interruption of the peace. The dazzling spectacle captivated the populace; as the parents pressed the shutter of their cameras, the children pressed play on the excitement and awe in the atmospheric elation both young and old wished to partake in. In that moment, I felt the raw and unhindered passions of my youthful innocence once more; immediately inspired over again to portray the hues of childhood in my work. With the emotions I leave through this canvas, I hope to leave an impact that will last.


 The rainbow is a symbolic figure of our imaginations and fantasies as a child; an imprint we all inscribe in our memories. I convey these memories of the past into my current pictures in the form of cheerful, bright colors, whether it is presented on the girls, the trees, or the surroundings. I want these fragments of my memory to be living in my paintings, here, in the present.


We all have aspirations, and even if they come true, new dreams will flourish; as humans, we are all flawed and constantly striving to perfect our imperfections. Symbolic of our eternal desire, the little girl in every painting is an illustration of not only me, but of the inner child of everyone else. The watercolors used in my pictures depict blissful ignorance. It’s vivid and fluorescent colors exemplify childish and wild imaginations, yet the sheerness embodies the faded navet of youth. As people observe my artwork, I hope to restore the purity of childhood.
