This exhibit at Flame Run Gallery is called Rediscovery. (February 4 – March 25, 2011). This isn’t a huge body of work by Sungsoo Kim – it only takes up the front room at Flame Run. I’ve been thinking about what Sungsoo Kim’s glass sculptures reminded me of . When I was small, I used to play with these brightly colored plastic pieces that would interconnect with each other. Some of those pieces, like Kims,’ had holes in them others were solid. These sculptures are very solid, structural, almost building block-like not delicate pieces of glass at all. Kim used discarded styro foam packaging and other recycled consumer product packaging to create molds for his sculptures. I guess I am more intrigued with the way Kim must have developed and then created these sculptures then the actual work. Although in the right setting and lighting I think these pieces (like the one pictured) would be stunning. The colors are very vivid and striking. This is one exhibit I would have liked to have been to the opening so I could hear the artist speak about the work.
