Hee Sook Kim is a Korean-born American painter and printmaker based in Philadelphia, PA. Kim paints what she has experienced, what she feels, and what she wants to commemorate. Kim’s paintings are like a diary because she regularly goes out to enjoy the beauty of nature and then comes back to her studio where she paints what she experienced there. Also, Kim’s paintings are similar to Jeong Seon’s work (Korean: 겸재 정선) (1676 – 1759) because so much of it is landscape painting. Kim’s paintings show the strong influence of traditional Joseon Dynasty painting because of elements that are used and the composition of the painting. However her painting technique and vivid color selection comes from Western culture.
