Artists & Collectors
MiHee Kim Magee is an abstract painter based in London. Her painting involves the pursuit of spiritual aims through experimental, improvised processes that lead to uncertain outcomes, to challenge herself and the viewer. Her inspirations include free jazz and improvised music, which she connects with through her work as an album cover artist. She particularly enjoys working with Korean paper and inks because of the subtle, slow and delicate interactions that she sets up between the extraordinarily absorbent paper and the vivid inks, which never fail to bring surprises once they have dried. Patiently observing these slowly unfolding processes is a meditative experience for her, which she hopes to share with the viewer through the finished paintings. She also uses elements of collage to bring out a distinction between foreground and background, sharp and subtle, material and spiritual.
