Bulluk 2023

Soah Kim's work is inspired by the Korean ideophone 'Bulluk' (불룩), which describes objects that protrude, stick out, or have a prominent and swollen shape. She focuses on capturing the transient moments created by movement.

Through these explorations, Soah Kim seeks to convey subtle sensuality within modesty. The 'Bulluk_23-l' series represents a key part of the Bulluk project. The smoothly applied colors enhance the gentle sensations within the forms, creating a synesthetic pleasure that engages visual, gustatory, and instinctual senses.

This artwork evokes the sensation of a luscious peach, the graceful curves of buttocks, or even the tender touch of someone's skin, showcasing the artist's subtle sense of humor.
