Byron Kim Paints Brooklyn's Night Sky



For his latest solo exhibition, Byron Kim painted the night sky from memory in his Brooklyn studio. "Dark" is a series of large-scale minimal paintings that are somewhere between abstraction and realism. Layers of dark hues cover entire canvases, with only the occasional hint of interior architecture to pull viewers back to the intended context. The paint feels heavy, like the city's night sky, positioning itself as a barrier between the personal and the universal.

"Byron Kim: Dark" is on view at the James Cohan Gallery until December 17.
