Mie Yim

MIE YIM is a painter born in Seoul, S. Korea, and based in NYC. Yim’s paintings combine saturated colors with dramatic content and thick surface textures to express the artist's notions of beauty. Her figures—like her memories of her childhood in South Korea—are often hazy and fuzzy, and have changed over her career from anthropomorphic animals into strange machine-like beings. Yim’s work juxtaposes representations of bunny ears and doe eyes with an underlying sense of horror to uncanny effect.

Yim has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in the States and abroad. She is the recipient of Pollock Krasner Grant 2020, she will be having a solo show at Villa Magdalena in San Sebastian, Spain in 2021 and Marcia Wood Gallery, Atlanta GA in 2022.
