Artists in Residence

Vivian Hyelim Kim

Painter, paper and fiber artist Vivian Hyelim Kim, a Korean native currently living in New York presented her colorful intricate paper patterned 3-D installation at A.I.R. Studio, 621 Madison Street in the LowerTown Arts District on Wednesday, December 26, 2012, from 4-7 PM.

“Vivian Hyelim Kim’s artwork dangles from ceilings, sticks to windows and covers floors. Using intricate patterns, she creates installations made from hundreds of pieces of colorful paper, each cut into circular designs. When she’s done, a room feels like a wonderland covered in odd paper snowflakes,” said iList Paducah writer Casey Northcutt. “As of Dec. 11, she has partially covered the studio’s front windows with paper cutouts and she has created designs along one wall with pastels and stencils.”
