Kim Radochia: Murmurations

Kim Radochia: Murmurations
Description:

Walking the edge between sculpture and painting, Kim Radochia’s swirling paper assemblages encourage viewers to engage in the very kinds of natural movements they depict. Conceptually preoccupied with ‘Li,’ the ancient Chinese practice of gathering and organizing patterns found in nature, Kim finds inspiration for her abstract wall sculptures in the configurations of flocking birds called murmurations, water currents and lines, and geological formations. Thousands of meticulously painted and hand torn pieces of paper converge and disperse in each sculpture, pulling our gaze along, radiating movement and energy. The static becomes kinetic with the viewer’s participation, as color and form shift dramatically alongside our own movements. From each angle, Kim’s paper creations transform into seemingly new works of art.

Join us for an opening celebration Saturday, August 20th from 6 - 8pm!

Time: 8/6/16 10:00am - 10/16/16 5:00pm
Location: West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park, Stowe
