Strange figure

Mie Yim, Osmosis (2022). Oil on canvas. 55 x 77 x 2 in.

I'm a painter based in New York City, born in South Korea. I've been working for almost 40 years, mainly oil on canvas. I've started with figurative art in the beginning and pivoted to abstraction and now I'm making work that synthesizes both elements. I'm making mainly large paintings for upcoming projects, hopefully to build some inventory. I've had many solo and group shows all over the world, e.g. Simone Subal, Olympia, Pace University in New York City, Inna Art Space, Hangzhou, China, Brattleboro Museum, VT, Villa Magdalena in Spain and many others. I've received NYFA in painting twice, Pollock Krasner, Yaddo residency, Sharpe Walentas and many others.

About Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program

The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program awards rent-free non-living studio space to 17 visual artists for year-long residencies in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Its mission is to provide working studio space and community for artists. Artists are selected annually based on merit from a competitive pool of applicants by a professional jury comprised of artists and members of the SWSP Artists Advisory Committee.

The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program is the new face of the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation Space Program, developed for artists, by artists in 1991. In 2014 the program was renamed the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program to honor the legacy of Marie Walsh Sharpe and reflect the new sponsorship and commitment of the Walentas Family Foundation.
