de-skinned: duk ju l kim recent work
Chicago-based artist Duk Ju L. Kim was born in Busan, South Korea and spent her formative years in Tehran, Iran. The historical, geopolitical, and current events that shaped her early life and her perception of the world are present in her paintings. Cities lie in ruins, layers of psychological, architectural history pile up and human figures take on the structure of buildings–appear amidst the rubble.
