Yongchul Kim. VOLTA Basel

 

Since moving to Germany, Yongchul Kim has been concerned with questions about the existence of people and his own identity. Questions that particularly occupy him due to his status as a "stranger" or "foreigner" in Germany. Thus, his figures embark on a search for the reality that exists apart from subjective perception.

In his painting, Yongchul Kim addresses the existential questions of humanity and the eternal search for reality. His motifs are in a state of constant change. They almost dissolve in his expressive brushstrokes, leaving them in a state of creation and decay.
