The work of Dong Kyu Kim occupies a middle place between craft and painting. His art is typically the result of manually stitching items, such as receipts, together. Each stitch has its own character, like a gesture; and each receipt reveals a different part of the artist’s psyche. TransAmerica, for instance, which details Dong Kyu Kim’s consumerist habits, re-imagines the American ideal of individuality and buying power in the form of manual labor devoted to stitching together mementos of experiences that the artist felt could be revisited again and again.
