ARTIST STATEMENT 'reincarnation' 2018 - Kim Hyunji

Recognising Australia’s multiculturalism and diversity, Kim’s main subjects are the culturally attuned creatives of her generation, the Millennials.

Through painting Kim explores her generation and the role social media plays in the construction and portrayal of identity. Her paintings reference the processes of social media photography through their use of high contrast and the inclusion of reflective materials.

Kim’s sharp observations of the continual need for this portrayal of identity ‘reinvention’ and the challenges faced by social media personalities to present to the world a carefully edited version of their true persona, reflects and inform these portraits.
