Soo Kim is a Korean-American artist. She was born in South Korea in 1969 and moved to Los Angeles in 1980. She earned a B.A. from the University of California, Riverside, and a MFA from California Institute of the Arts. Kim lives in Los Angeles and is on the faculty at Otis College of Art and Design. Kim often employs techniques of cutting and layering in order to introduce areas of absence or disruption in what we tend to take for granted—the interpretation of photographic images.”
Kim’s work is in the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum. In 2013, Kim was awarded the prestigious John Gutmann Photography Fellowship by the San Francisco Foundation.
