Daniel Kim

Emu

Highly Commended Award - Seed Stich Contemporary Textiles Award, Australian Design Centre

In an age that glorifies the ‘new’, Daniel steadfastly paints in the tradition of the Old Masters. He has a profound and innate ability to representationally paint his surroundings. On the canvas, he acts as a magician; seemingly transforming three dimensional lived worlds into two dimensional surfaces.

Comparatively, Daniel's textile work takes on more of a contemporary abstract form. Drawing on painting techniques of layering colour to depict light and shadow, his hand-stitched textile sculptures seem to translate the painted mark as a line of yarn. He loops and stitches colours together to build up a depth reminiscent of a skilled painter.
