Jean Rim

  • American, 1975

  • Bio

    Born in Seoul and a graduate of Parson School of Design and the San Francisco Art Institute, Jean Rim’s work is an expression of her experiences as a healer, traveler, painter, photographer and performer.

    Her carved paintings have a certain physical quality. Incorporating crystals and flowers, her work is inspired by Korean lacquered pieces and abalone shell inlaid furniture, mandalas, and altars. The artist also references nature by carving fish scale-like marks into her layered painted surfaces. This is meant to symbolize The Little Mermaid’s loss when she underwent her transition from sea to land - an analogy to the immigrant experience; both lose their voice and find a new way to communicate.

    Jean Rim has had well received solo exhibitions in Seoul, South Korea, and participated in The Other Art Fair. Annually, on June 12th, she performs a Day of Loving to celebrate Interracial Marriage Day. In 2019, she accepted a residency in Peru and today she is a guest teacher at Cooper Union School of Art and public schools in NYC. The artist currently splits her time between Seoul and Brooklyn, New York.
