'Childlike Innocence' - Able Fine Art NY Gallery
Through February 12, 2013 - New York

Able Fine Art NY Gallery is pleased to present the work by Su-Jin Lim, a young Korean artist currently residing in New York City. As a Pop artist of a new generation of Asian painters, Su-Jin Lim approaches art as a mode of self expression through acrylic painting and mixed media printed on canvas. The subjects of her paintings revolve around young girls and whimsical animals with exaggerated eyes and features. Her paintings are characteristic in their vibrant and bright color scheme and embellishments of clothing and bowties. However her pieces depict multiple layers of emotion with the addition of flames and tears to the faces and heads of her forms. Her focus is to convey emotion through more simplified peoples and beings that are reminiscent of Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. Su-Jin?s paintings are drawn with simple features such as two dots for the nostrils and a curved line for the mouth. Her emphasis is on feeling and a certain sensitivity and sophistication. Her art is childlike by creating a world rejecting adult life and addressing a discomfort in the older, however it is not naive. The tears or flames dominate the emotion of her imagery, in her words ?People are not computers. They have emotions and need emotional recognition.? Her work creates a world of childlike innocence that drives the audience to an emotional response. Her images reflect the hardships of life through colorful details and depictions of simple vulnerabilities.
