Artist Kim Joon Tiny Blue Jeans Blues

by Sherry Riter in Art  

I know I talk about wearing pajamas when I’m home, but when I’m out and about, I’m totally a blue jeans girl. That’s why the art of Kim Joon caught my eye.

Kim Joon was born in 1966 in Seoul, Korea. His art works which uses porcelain as the digital medium, explores themes that include desire, memory and youth. Each art piece includes things such as tableware, fragments of idealized nudes, musical instruments, icons of Western pop culture, guitars, cars and guns.

What exactly is his art?

Blue Jeans Blues. Since blue is my favorite color and blue jeans are my favorite outside clothing, you gotta know that I enjoyed reading about Kim Joon’s art.

“His Blue Jean Blues retains another depth. This works make ‘One’ from several consciously fragmented objects while collect and scatter these. This ‘One’ is the work itself and just rushing toward the artist’s recollection and memory. And it, which is opened as ‘One’ in the end, is a newly acquired open world this time. His way of working is similar to making a new song through the jam-section like a jazz bebop: In which, a performer plays the theme of a certain song and then each section performer plays independent variation together. And a song is made from that such performers jam in loosely promised points. It seems to be intended idea of the artist who is versed in music.”
