“Having lived in Vancouver, Canada where I was blessed with a balance between nature and urbanism, I am now constantly seeking inspiration from nature in the midst of New York City.  The new series, “PEARLS ON THE RAINBOW FLOWERS,” is my attempt to celebrate the complex cluster of urban living and the vibrancy of life. As if capturing a burst of radiance from a blooming flower, I attempt to weave the space with contrasting images of foliage, clouds, and pearls (dots).

The floral images are taken from the previous series, “BLOOM AND BACKFIRE” where I investigated powerful forces through blossom bouquets and bullet holes; emphasizing that the most fragile state can lead to something more powerful. Whimsical clouds appear like firework explosions during a celebration and pearls reflect elements of vibrant, breathtaking jewelry. By placing these motifs in layers of complexity, I want the viewer to experience the bursting sounds of their kinetic energy and the optimistic facets of life.”   Suzy Taekyung Kim
