Although this painting feels like pure abstraction, it has profound ties to the world. Inspired by the writing of Chuang Tzu, an early Daoist who wrote eloquently about the relationship of the infinite to the infinitesimal, each painting in The Sunday Paintings series depicts a sky-colored field upon which Kim wrote a diary entry every Sunday. (This painting was created while Kim was visiting Greensboro.) In this manner, the artist compares the vastness of the sky with his quotidian, relatively insignificant life. Moreover, the term Sunday painter refers to amateur artists who paint for only a few hours each week and thus to Kim’s indecision and uncertainty about his own career.
