WORKS ON REFLECTION II
William Benington Gallery presents Kim Thome’s first show with the gallery: Works on Reflection II.
Works On Reflection II is a spatial installation which is the result of a longer investigation exploring the 'reflective'. Using the gallery space as the canvas, the installation will use the 'reflective' as medium. Colour, geometry and patterns are central in staging a fictional space for these to merge, creating an ephemeral ever-changing environment.
Semi-transparent and reflective material such as two-way mirror allows Kim to manipulate the fore and background of the piece in such a way that the graphic aesthetic becomes something of a relational experience with the viewer.
Fascinated by the obscure reality projected in semi-reflective surfaces, these calculated interventions play with our expectancy of our surroundings and spaces.
