Younghee Kim earned her BFA from Ewha Women’s University in Seoul, Korea and
studied at the Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, PA under Julian Levi, Joseph
Amorotico, and Ben Kamihira. Younghee earned her MA in Fine Arts, with guidance
from Jerrold Maddox, Oscar Larmer, and James Munce at Kansas State University.
Younghee explains in her own words, “In most of my work, I try to blend colors and
composition into an enjoyable visual adventure.
My art and insights into life are very
personal offerings to others as a simple sharing of feelings and perceptions. I strive to
express and inspire deep feelings for colors and form, my own visceral response to
nature, to radically simplify and to get to the essence. I focus on the emotional and
spiritual levels and nuances of colors and try to structure this into the designs of my
paintings. I attempt to create pictures within pictures and dimensionality through layers
and composition. Various dancing colors are important because they symbolize our
feelings and emotions. In all of my works, I want to visually articulate the aching human
desire to communicate an intensity of thought and feeling. As an artist, I have attempted
to live a creative life, searching and striving for meaning and beauty."
