These yummy painting are by Soojin Kim. A recipient of the Dana Pond Award as well as a Bolt Award- Ms. Kim's artist statement reads:
Objects have the power of carrying the memories across space, time, culture and generations. I interpret the images of objects in the languages of paints and brushes to create an emotional and sensual communication.
Originally completing her Masters in Electrical Engineering at Boston University-Ms. Kim recently finished her Fifth Year Certificate Program at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
Ms. Kim recounts in her bio that she has fond memories of eating American sweets with her father when they were living in Korea. I find her painting to be quintessentially American in their portrayal of the ordinary while demonstrating a keen talent for creating realistic images.
The two images above I took while I was visiting the Museum of Fine Art in Boston- They are oil on canvas and much more impressive in color than my Iphone could do justice- The image below is a drawing from Ms. Kim's website.
